Invasive Species Found in Orchid Heights Park Pond
Posted on Sep 27th, 2010

Watercress and Water Lettuce, both invasive species, were recently found in the ponds at Orchids Heights park. These plants are common decorative plants for yard water features, but can explode in growth when accidently released into the wild. The city hired a contractor to eradicate most of the plants in the ponds at Orchid Heights. It is unlikely the remaining plants will survive the winter.
 
 
 
If you have a decorative pond on your property, please learn how to identify the plants present and be careful they are not accidently released into the wild. To learn more about aquatic invasive species, visit the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website at: http://dnr.wi.gov/invasives/aquatic/.
