Protecting the native plants at Celery Pond - Entertainment & Life - Holland Sentinel - Holland, MI
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Native plants in South Haven's Celery Pond are being crowded out by an invasive reed that European settlers brought to this area in the 19th century.

The plant is named phragmites australis and it can grow up to 20-feet tall, take up nutrients in the pond and eventually suck up all the water, ecologists say.

That is why ecologists and conservationist are…
