Last September, the invasive plant, variable water-milfoil (Myriophyllum heterophyllum) was found in Androscoggin Lake by a volunteer Invasive Plant Patroller. In response, a coalition of local, regional, and statewide partners leapt into action.
The coalition included 30 Mile, the Androscoggin Lake Improvement Corporation, Lake Stewards of Maine, the Department of Environmental Protection, and a dedicated team of volunteer Invasive Plant Patrollers.
This video captures the majesty of the imperiled lake and the actions we are taking to save it.
Stay tuned this spring and summer for how you can get involved in our efforts to protect ALL our lakes from invasive aquatic plants.
