Remember: anything dumped in the water sources at Burke Mountain could make their way to one of our local creeks, which are fish-bearing. These invasive species can choke out native species, extinguishing them from the ecosystem entirely. Plus, releasing live animals into the wild is illegal! Invasive species are anything that aren’t naturally found in that environment.
Have a fish, frog, turtle or other pet that you can’t take care of anymore? It doesn’t belong in our local waterways!
