District staff are stationed to guide visitors in treatment areas adjacent to trails.The district is charged with controlling nuisance upland and aquatic vegetation on thousands of acres of district-owned properties. Where invasive, nonnative plants invade Florida’s forests and wetlands, they often choke out native plant species and can overrun a water body and block water control structures. To ensure the safety and welfare of the public, wildlife and environment, a determination is made for each site and plant species as to which approved herbicide will be used.WHAT: Aerial herbicide treatmentWHEN: August 21st–24th and August 28th WHERE: Lake Apopka North Shore (multiple trailheads) About the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictSt. Johns River Water Management District staff are committed to ensuring the sustainable use and protection of water resources for the benefit of the people of the district and the state of Florida.
