Zach Dieterman, the South District field coordinator for the Rochester-based AmeriCorps crew in August 2018, walked into an area where a Conservation Corps Minnesota & Iowa crew working through the Fillmore SWCD had treated the banks of the Root River at a public access with herbicide. In 2017, funding from state partners allowed for treating about one-third of known Japanese hops locations and all known poison hemlock locations along the Root River.
