This past February, the Rocky Mountain Invasive Plant Council hosted a Flowering Rush Symposium as part of their program in Spokane, WA. Flowering Rush is rapidly colonizing portions of river systems in the Pacific Northwest and control of this species is not yet well understood. This day long seminar provides excellent background and results of work to date on this problem species that we are going to see more of as time goes on. Aquatechnex biologists have been involved in the management of this noxious weed in Silver Lake, Washington and Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho. We are also tasked with surveying for it and other invasive species on portions of the Columbia River.
