Invasive aquatic plants will be subject of workshop
The free workshop, being held Saturday, June 14, from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is being coordinated by the Acton Wakefield Watersheds Alliance (AWWA) in partnership with the York County Invasive Aquatic Species Project and multiple lake associations from both states, according to AWWA Executive Director Linda Schier. Experts from the Maine Volunteer Lakes Monitoring Program and the NH Department of Environmental Services will cover how participants can prevent an invasive aquatic plant infestation in their own lakes.
The workshop is presented in four parts:
• Overview of invasive species issues in Maine, New Hampshire and beyond (native versus invasive is included in this section).
• Plant identification hands-on exercise with live plants (natives and invasives).
Schier said lakefront property owners and frequent visitors on the lakes could benefit from the workshop, which is geared to the layperson. Schier said this workshop is the first time officials from both Maine and New Hampshire will present in the same workshop.
To register, or for more information, contact AWWA at 473-2500 or lindaschier@AWwatersheds.org.
