The Gainesville meeting will be held from 5:30- 8:30 p.m. on February 19 at the Alachua County Library Headquarters, 401 E. University Ave., Gainesville, FL 32601.

Invasive plants degrade and diminish Florida's waterways by displacing native plant communities. Some invasive aquatic plants pose a significant threat to human welfare and cause economic problems by impeding flood control and affecting recreational use of waterways.
