About

PIP is a local citizens group that includes landowners, staff of local recreational areas and agencies that are dedicated to the mission of promoting the health of native plants and trees, including the removal of invasive, exotic plants that harm native flora.

Native plants are an intricate part of our surroundings, and their absence or extinction has reverberating impacts on all aspects of our ecosystem, hampering its sustainable functioning.

Current Project Include:

  • Weed Wrangles on public lands—Hovey Lake, Harmonie State Park, Brittlebank Park

  • Adopt a highway—HWY 69 just south of HWY 62, combined with removal of exotics

  • Involving Youth Project, working with youth/school groups to promote native spaces

  • Golf Cart Tours of Native and Exotic areas in New Harmony

  • Advice to landowners struggling with invasive exotics

  • Organizing educational materials and speakers’ bureau, Public Education

Anyone interested in invasive plant issues within Posey County is invited to attend the PIP Meetings.
