Join biologist Kyle Borrowman to learn about various control methods employed by Ducks Unlimited Canada to control and limit the spread of two invasive aquatic plants, European water chestnut and parrot feather, that threaten Ontario’s native plant biodiversity. European water chestnut and parrot feather both form dense mats of vegetation that outcompete native species and impede boating, angling, and other recreational water activities. Fortunately, these plants are not widespread in Ontario and are regulated under the Ontario Invasive Species Act. Active management by Ducks Unlimited Canada helps reduce existing populations and protect Ontario’s environment, economy, and social well-being from further spread.
This webinar was presented in accordance with the United Nations International Year of Plant Health, which designated April 2020 as Invasive Plant Pest and Invasive Species Month.
