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
