NOBLESVILLE — With Hamilton County Invasive Species Awareness Week approaching (April 16-23), the Hamilton County Invasive Partnership has announced a ‘bucket challenge’.
This challenge, quite different from the bucket challenge that swept the internet in 2014 for ALS Awareness, calls for Hamilton County residents to fill a bucket with removed invasives to encourage stronger invasive species management in the county.
Participants are asked to fill their buckets and post pictures to social media with the hashtag #invasivesbucketchallenge for a chance to win prizes. A bucket from HIP can be picked up from the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District at 1717 Pleasant St., Noblesville, IN 46060.
Invasive species are non-native and cause harm to the environment, human health and the economy.
