Invasive Plant Patrol Workshops:
In-Class and On the Water
It all started when…
In partnership with EOS Eco-Energy and the Watershed Coordinator Kelli-Nicole in Sackville, the New Brunswick Alliance of Lake Associations offers a two part workshop series training volunteers as members of the Invasive Plants Patrol.
The in-class workshops will take place in the Fall and Winter seasons. In-class workshops will revolve around an overview of the invasive species issues unique to New Brunswick, examples of plant communities and native as well as invasive plants identification fundamentals. Similarly, there will be a presentation on New Brunswick’s 10 Most Unwanted Plants and their native lookalikes with a special case study examining Eurasian water milfoil - a particularly deadly invasive currently found in the Saint John River watershed and several other water systems.
The 4-hour paddle in-field workshops will take place in the Spring and Summer months at various different lake locations including: Lake George, Yoho Lake and Harvey Lake. This will be an opportunity for volunteers to kayak and canoe the waterways for an on the ground approach to surveying and plant identification techniques.
This is a wonderful opportunity to get lake residents, adults and children alike, more involved with looking after the health of your lake!
