This session is part of a series of public information sessions and water surveys held by the CWC (funded by the Chautauqua Lake & Watershed Management Alliance) throughout the summer. Participants will learn how to distinguish beneficial native aquatic plant species from invasive and problematic species (“weed”) and learn what you can do as individuals and as a community to prevent the arrival and spread of new aquatic invasive species. Those interested can also participate in aquatic surveys to locate and remove invasive plants.
Participation is free, but pre-registration is required as water programs are limited to 10 participants per session. Registration can be done by calling 716-664-2166 or by emailing [email protected]. Those participating in water training sessions must bring their own kayak or canoe and life her jacket.
