Hydrilla: The Eno River’s #1 Enemy

September 9, 2014

Hydrilla, a fast-spreading non-native weed, is threatening our river!

  • It is growing in dense mats, affecting swimming, paddling, and fishing
  • It is crowding out our native plants
  • It is making it hard for large native game fish like White Bass to thrive
  • It is encouraging the growth of toxic blue-green algae that can threaten local birds

To learn more about efforts to monitor & control Hydrilla, visit our Hydrilla webpage.IMG_0064In 2011, Eno River State Park rangers worked with iWalk the Eno Summer Camp volunteers to hand-pull Hydrilla.

More Critical Land and Water Protected

Over four acres was added to Eno River State Park in Durham County at the end of December, thanks to a land purchase completed by the Eno River Association last June. The Association also protected two more properties last September totaling 101 acres in Orange County. Approximately half this land adjoins Eno River State Park and protects Buckquarter Creek, a major tributary of the river.  The other half is located along the West Fork of Eno in Cedar Grove upstream of Hillsborough’s water supply. These projects would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors, the landowners, Orange County’s Lands Legacy Program, the Town of Hillsborough, the City of Raleigh, the US Endowment for Forestry and Communities, and the Conservation Trust for North Carolina.
