Conservation group fighting invasive species
The Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation is seeking volunteers for a prairie clean-up day at an INHF-owned location in northwestern Jasper County from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday.
According to Mary Runkel, INHF volunteer coordinator, the “evening on the prairie” will involve an informal and educational prairie hike where participants will be removing sweet clover and wild parsnip along the way.
“They’re both non-native invasive species that can really damage a virgin prairie,” Runkel said. “They outcompete with the native grasses and species, taking over the area completely if they go unchecked.”
