The recently formed Wabash River Invasives Project (WRIP) is a Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) in Parke and Vermillion counties. Part of creating this group is to hold educational events and work days within the counties. Weed Wrangles tie both of those aspects into one event. Weed Wrangles are volunteer events hosted nationwide to control the invasive plants that are negatively impacting our public parks, green spaces and natural areas. During these events, community members learn to identify and control through hands-on removal of these invasive plants which are causing harm to our native plant communities.
