Knotweed in the Upper Delaware River Watershed

01/28/2021 at 6:00pm

Japanese Knotweed is present everywhere along the Upper Delaware River and its tributaries. Left unmanaged it continues to spread along the river and everywhere it can find suitable conditions all the while crowding out native riparian vegetation leading to habitat loss, soil erosion and bank destabilization. Friends of the Upper Delaware River is undertaking research to document the extent of knotweed colonization and its impacts on soils and aquatic habitat. In 2021 they are also establishing 3 demonstration sites where landowners can see different options for you to manage, control, or even eradicate knotweed using a variety of low-cost techniques. Learn more about the research and knotweed management techniques during this informative event.
