This is a great opportunity to get on the water and have some fun… all for a good cause. Water chestnut is an invasive plant that has the potential to spread and get out of control. It is wreaking havoc on native plants and animals and interfering with recreation on our rivers. Join us in hand-pulling the plants, which pull up easily! Join staff and partners throughout the watershed and paddle with a purpose! Most pulling events are BYOB: Bring Your Own Boat. We could also use assistance from shallow draft motor boats to help us shuttle plants back to land.
We will provide supplies and instruction on how to pull the plants. It’s easy to do but technique is important. Learn how to identify and report water chestnut as well as when it appropriate to pull the plants, how to properly pull them and how to properly dispose of the pulled plants. We will come talk to your organization! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a presentation.
