West Virginia State University hosts invasive species event

INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) — Landowners and others interested in identifying and controlling invasive species in West Virginia can attend an online program on the topic.

Rebekah Wallace of the Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health at the University of Georgia will provide information on reporting invasive species.
