Aquatic Plant Ecology Exploration

Saturday, July 14, 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Location: Participants may either meet us at the SLA, located at 534 US Rt. 3 in Holderness or meet us at Moon and Bowman Islands. Click Here for the SLA's location on Google Map. Those meeting us at SLA will head out with us to Moon or Bowman Island using one of SLA's motorized boats.

About the Day:  Join SLA experts for a morning of aquatic plant ecology! We will head out to Moon or Bowman Island, from there participants will use SLA provided canoes, kayaks, or snorkel gear during this fun program on aquatic plant identification. The program will focus on identifying look-alikes to the invasive plant, variable milfoil, and on familiarizing participants with aquatic invasive plants that are not currently found in Squam. After participating, you will be a trained Weed Watcher, and can survey the Lakes on your own, helping to protect Squam from aquatic invasive species. 

As always, this work is weather dependent. Should any changes to plans arise, we will provide updates. We encourage help from volunteers who love the outdoors, enjoy hands-on conservation work, and are excited to work with our LRCC AmeriCorps members!

What to Bring: Participants should bring appropriate clothing, water, sunscreen, and a snack.
