Weed Watcher Training

Amy Smagula, NHDES Aquatic Invasive Species Program Coordinator, is conducting an online training session with the Tuftonboro Conservation Commission to educate folks on what to look for, and what to do if they find an Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) in Lake Winnipesaukee. AIS can displace beneficial wildlife, reduce the aesthetic quality of our lakes, create poor recreational conditions, and require substantial funding for long term-management.  Variable Milfoil is the only confirmed exotic or nuisance plant found in Lake Winnipesaukee at this time, first discovered in the lake in 1965. Mystery Snails are also an invasive species that has been found within Winni and other surrounding waterbodies. You can help stop the spread of existing exotic species in NH waterbodies and prevent the introduction of new species by knowing what to be on the lookout for, and by practicing ‘Clean, Drain, and Dry’ on your boat, kayak, or canoe after each use. If you are unable to attend this meeting will be recorded.
