About the Event

Join Squam Lakes Association (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 Lakes Region Conservation Corps members!
