We’ll be working hard to remove invasive water chestnut from the Alan Devoe Bird Club and Hand Hollow Conservation Area during the hot summer months. It’s a great way to get out on the water and do good at the same time! Water chestnut poses a big problem for wildlife and boaters, as it forms dense mats of vegetation and has incredibly unpleasant spiky fruits.
Please bring your own boat if you have one, as CLC has a limited number of kayaks and canoes.
Email John Horton to join the volunteer list-serve and get more details on when and where these water chestnut pulls will be taking place!
