The invasive plant, giant salvinia, is thriving in Caddo Lake. Recent flooding has washed a large amount of it out of the lake, but it has not been eradicated. The Caddo BioControl Alliance and the Greater Caddo Lake Association need help with funding in efforts to keep the salvinia in check. If left alone the invasive aquatic plant could destroy the lake's ecosystem. Long term it could actually fill the lake.
