Cahaba Current: September 2017 – Find out how you can combat invasive plants and take action in your community to protect the Cahaba.

Last month, we let you know that there had been a tenfold increase in invasive taro plants infesting Cahaba Lily habitat at the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge in West Blocton.

On August 23, 2017, we began “Project Tarobliteration” working to eradicate the taro. Where possible, we pulled it up by the roots, and where that was not possible, we cut back the stalks and leaves in using string trimmers in an effort to eventually starve the bulbs of energy, causing them to die.
