Weed Watcher Workshop

On August 21, 2010 Amy Smagula from NH Department of Environmental Services presented a Weed Watchers Workshop. 15 people (including 2 boat drivers) gathered at the Maine boat launch and traveled by pontoon boat to Scribner River. Amy demonstrated various types of weeds that are native and therefore not invasive. She also brought samples of invasive weeds (including milfoil) that should to be reported if found. Thanks to those who gave up a beautiful summer morning to become more informed weed watchers. Participants received a Weed Watcher Kit that will help them identify aquatic weeds in their section of the lake. Also thanks to Doug Smith and Chuck Hodsdon, our boat drivers and to Linda Schier who lent her boat. We are fortunate to have the services of Amy Smagula, a very knowledgeable limnologist.
