State parks are great places to check out an area's wild plant life, but officers found some vegetation on Blennerhassett Island that wasn't supposed to be there.
The Division of Natural Resources recovered more than two dozen marijuana plants growing on the island.
The plants stand about eight to ten feet tall, and have an overall street value of $3,000 to $5,000.
"A lot of people visit the park, a lot of boaters around the area on weekends," W.V. DNR Captain Harry Shaver said. "It's not surprising, but it's out of the ordinary."
DNR officers say they're taking photos and samples for evidence. The plants will then be burned and disposed of at a landfill.
