CommentsI discovered watercress in our wetlands and my husband and I pulled it all from our area last year. But it originates upstream from us on another person's property. We don't know them and are not comfortable approaching them. Please help before the plants infest the rest of these wetlands and continue further downstream. Thank you.; EDDMapS report
