Project Overview

Several landowners in Lost Creek sub-watershed who previously received treatments to remove Japanese knotweed are replanting streambanks with native trees, shrubs and herbs 2009-2010. The initial phase of the project was conducted from 2004-2007 and resulted in the successful removal of 20 acres of knotweed along Lost Creek. However, Japanese knotweed has begun to return and other non-native species such as reed canary grass and non-native blackberries have started to move in. To keep invasive plants out, the sites are being replanted with native vegetation.
