Good news! Water chestnut is easy to identify and can be managed by trained volunteers. Together, we can do something about it! Plus, it’s a great opportunity to get on the water and have some fun…all for a good cause.
Attend a Pull or Organize Your Own
Pulling events typically occur from June through August. Events are part of a multi-organizational collaboration united in the goal of removing this invasive plant from all parts of the Connecticut River basin. Use the calendar to find a pulling event near you or search by organization!
If you choose to attend an organized pull we will provide supplies and instruction on how to pull the plants. It’s easy to do, but technique is important. You are welcome to bring your own boat, rent a boat, or contact us for other options. While this is generally a paddle event, shallow motor boats are helpful to shuttle loads of plants back to land.
