Glendale FWA hosts weed wrangle on May 15

Join the Daviess-Martin Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) and the DNR for a weed wrangle on Saturday, May 15 at Glendale Fish & Wildlife Area (FWA).

Invasive plants such as amur honeysuckle bush threaten FWAs by choking out Indiana’s native vegetation and degrading wildlife habitat. During this event, volunteers will learn how to identify and remove amur honeysuckle and other invasive plants while helping to improve habitat quality.

The weed wrangle will take place from 10 a.m. to noon ET. Volunteers will meet at the Maintenance Shop just north of the Glendale FWA office on 600 South. Please bring sturdy shoes, work gloves, water, and a face mask. Masks will be needed when volunteers are gathered together and may be removed while working. Hand tools will be provided for pulling and cutting shrubs, but volunteers may also bring their own loppers or hand saws.

Advance registration is encouraged for this event. To register, see, or contact Glendale FWA at 812-674-0168 or
