Learn how to identify and remove invasive plants that may be in your yard, receive native plant and invasive plant ID cards!
One of the greatest threats to our great state of Florida is invasive exotic plants. With spring in sight, now is the time to prepare your yard for weeds and invasive plants. Plants are awakening from their winter slumber and their energy is focusing on new sprouts and new growth. When the plants are most active is when herbicides will have the best impact.
Popular and easy to grow plants like the asparagus-fern, bamboo and schefflera, easily spread and take over our natural areas, and the City of Fernandina Beach and the University of Florida/IFAS Extension want to partner with you to put a stop to the invasion.
