DO: LET’S PULL TOGETHER! JOIN A PULL NEAR YOU!

Help save the Connecticut River from an alien invader!

Water chestnut

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 species and interfering with recreation on our rivers.  We will be 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 instuction on how to pull the plants. It’s easy to do but techique is important. So is the work you will be doing!
