An environmental conservation organization in Bucks County recently worked to remove an invasive plant species from a local lake.

The Bucks County Conservation District, headquartered in Doylestown, recently held an annual clean-up effort to rid Lake Towhee in Quakertown of an invasive species known as European Water Chestnuts.

Over the span of 2 days, the organization, with the help of local volunteers, was able to pull a total of 103 bags of water chestnut from the lake.

“The Bucks County Conservation District was created in a Resolution by the County of Bucks on April 24, 1961,” the organization said online.

“At that time it was determined that the conservation of soil resources and the control and prevention of soil erosion were problems of public concern in the County of Bucks. In addition, a substantial proportion of the rural landowners in the County of Bucks favored the creation of a soil conservation district.”
