GREEN LAKE ASSOCIATION MAINE
Please join us Tuesday July 19th at 9:00 AM- 12:00PM for a
Green Lake Plant Paddle!!!
The class is free of charge. It is conducted both on dry land and in kayaks or other small watercraft on the water.
The class will teach us when to suspect a plant as an invasive. If a suspect plant is found, we will learn the next steps to take.
Mark Whiting from Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District will be leading the class.The class will also include information on how to inspect a boat, lines and anchors when moving craft from one lake to another to avoid sharing invasive plants.
Please contact Christy Stout for information and to sign up.Some boats are available to use on location, but we may need you to bring a kayak, paddle and life vest, depending on the number of people attending.

The plant paddle is a short (3 hour) guided exploration
that takes place on the shore and on the water.
There is plenty of room for people to join us here on Green Lake.
Please contact Christy Stout if interested in joining us.
In 2018, the staff of the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP) conducted a plant paddle on beautiful Flanders Pond in Sullivan. This annual 3 hour program will prepare you to survey your shoreline and identify plants.
Previous plant identification experience is not required.
