Fort targets invasive plants

TICONDEROGA - Volunteers are needed to harvest invasive and damaging plants that suffocate native species on land and in the waterways at Fort Ticonderoga. Participants will pick garlic mustard June 11. Volunteers should meet at the King's Garden parking lot at 10 a.m. for the two-hour initiative.

Water chestnut will be targeted on July 24. This effort is conducted in the bay below the fort and sponsored by The Nature Conservancy Lake Champlain Office. They will provide canoes, PFDs and instruction on harvesting. Protective clothing, gloves and sturdy shoes are recommended.
