Aquatic Herbicide Treatment Public Workshops

A body of still water reflecting a the sky.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is holding several public meetings to gather community input about the agency’s aquatic plant herbicide treatment program.

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.

These meetings will provide the public with an opportunity to give feedback about management activities on Florida water bodies during the past 12 months.

If you are not able to attend one of these meetings, you can provide comments to
