Bag the Flag Volunteer Event

Posted by Elizabeth on August 1, 2018

Thank you to all of the volunteers that came to the Bag the Flag Event! 

On July 26th, volunteers and SMWS staff went down to the Marsh and removed as many Yellow Flag Iris (Iris pseudacorus) seed pods as they could.  This beautiful but invasive plant has taken over much of the Marsh's ecosystem, leaving little room for endemic and native plants to flourish.  Thank you to all that came to help in the management of this species!
