PENNSYLVANIA, McKean County CD – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) announced Thursday the McKean County Conservation District will receive $50,000 in funding from the state Department of Agriculture to assist with two projects designed to control and eliminate infestations of invasive plant species in the region.

“The grant will be implemented in cooperation with the Allegheny Plateau Invasive Plant Management Area partnership, which is working as a five county collaborative to address invasive plants at a landscape level,” said Jody Groshek, communications & outreach director for the McKean County Conservation District.

“Non-native, invasive plants can cause serious problems for reforestation efforts and other environmental concerns,” Causer said. “I commend conservation district officials for their proactive efforts to eradicate these problems before they grow any worse.”
