What’s Invasive!

Would you like to help the Louisiana State Arboretum and Chicot State Park keep track of their invasive species of plants and animals? It’s very easy.  We have joined a website called What’s Invasive! at http://www.whatsinvasive.org/index.html All you have to do is sign up and report any invasive species that you may come across at either park.  That way we will be able to better track where invasive species occur. Here is a list of some of the invasive plants and animals that you may encounter in our parks.
