New Volunteers Trained on Pocasset Lake

September 9, 2023

On August 23rd, 30 Mile led an aquatic plant workshop for new invasive plant patrol volunteers on Pocasset Lake. Fourteen volunteers got hands-on learning in basic plant identification, how to distinguish between natives and invasives, and what to look for when surveying. THANK YOU to all who participated and to Richardsons’ Beach for hosting us. We look forward to continuing to work with Pocasset and all our lake associations next summer. Annual invasive plant surveys are critical to fighting invasive species in our lakes. If you are interested in becoming a plant patrol volunteer, please visit our volunteer webpage.
