AOWCP installs billboard along the Ohio River

The Appalachian Ohio Weed Control Partnership along with Southern Indian Cooperative Invasives Management (http://www.sicim.info) and River to River Cooperative Weed Management Area (http://www.rtrcwma.org) have continued working together to address invasive plant issues along the Ohio River.  Our partnership, Central Hardwoods Invasive Plant Network (CHIP-N) has partnered with the Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership and Wildlife Forever to install a billboard in Southern Ohio. We’ve had our billboard up along US 52 between Ashland, KY  and Southpoint, OH for over a month.  We should get anywhere from 800k-900k views over this time frame.  Hopefully efforts like this help people realize the importance of cleaning boating gear before traveling to another body of water.
