Week #40 Controlling Reed Canary Grass

Reed Canary grass (Phalaris arundinacea) is an invasive plant that has become established in the wetlands of Little Lake Valley. It outcompetes native plant populations and decreases biodiversity. One of the methods used to control Reed Canary grass on the Mitigation Project is tarping. Tarping, along with other methods such as hand-pulling and mowing, allow us to meet performance standards without the use of herbicides. The MCRCD plans on expanding these treatments to enhance critical Baker’s Meadowfoam habitat.
