A provincial Hit Squad member will be targeting Trenton this summer.
The Lower Trent Conservation Authority says summer student, Jenna Williamson, will be targeting invasive species for them as well as the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.
Williamson’s focus will be on the prevention and control of species including dog-strangling vine, garlic mustard and round goby.
Williamson is one of 21 Hit Squad members who will this summer patrol a total of 200 lakes, waterways and forests.
The program is sponsored in part by the Ministry of Natural Resources.
