Knotweed Removal


Volunteers under the direction of Andrew Karleigh, who was then the FdL County Invasive Species Coordinator, removed Japanese Knotweed, a very invasive species, from the future site of the Lakeside Park West Demonstration Garden. Since the removal of the Knotweed, the City of Fond du Lac has treated and mulched the area in preparation for the Garden.


Mulched Area Where Japanese Knotweed Was Cut: (The top half of the graph shows 65 feet along the river bank at the north end of the plot. The lower portion of the graph shows an additional 65 feet as you move south.)
