Your MWA is hosting a free Invasive Aquatic Plant Paddle workshop at the Bog Bridge Boat Ramp on Megunticook Lake, Thursday, July 11, from 9 a.m. to noon, put on by Lake Stewards of Maine.
Invasive Aquatic Plant Paddles are three-hour guided explorations that take place on shore and on the water. They are an informal way to learn about Maine’s native aquatic plants, as well as the invasive aquatic plants that threaten these ecologically-important habitats. Participants will each receive a free Quick Key to Ruling Out Maine’s Eleven Most Unwanted Invasive Aquatic Plants, and the practice skills needed to spot suspicious plants while out recreating on the water.

Preregistration is required; contact the Lake Stewards of Maine at or 783-7733 to register. For on-line registration and workshop schedule updates visit

That’s it for now, see you on the water!
