SWCD Offers Funds for Invasive Plant Control

The Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District announces funds are now available to landowners through the Clean Water Indiana grants.

Floyd County is offering funds for a new program to assist in the evaluation and eradication of invasive plants on your acreage. The SWCD is offering to pay a portion of the assistance provided by a consultant forester to help homeowners and land users to identify invasive species on their property. This grant will also offer a trade-in payment for the eradication and replacement of invasive plants in your yard. These invasive plants include the Callery/Bradford Pear Tree, Japanese Barberry, and Burning Bush.

For more information and cost-share rates and reimbursements, please contact Angel Jackson at the Floyd County Soil & Water Conservation District office at (812) 945-9936.
