The recent discovery of variable-leaf milfoil in Big Lake is a wakeup call for the watersheds of the Downeast Lakes region, which are threatened with the invasion of exotic plant species.  These unwanted species can cause irreparable damage to fisheries and native ecosystems, and they can be spread unintentionally on boats, float planes, and even Gore-Tex waders!  Join representatives from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to learn about the planned response to the Big Lake infestation, as well as how to identify aquatic invasive plants, how to report outbreaks, and how to avoid accidentally spreading these harmful species. Meet at the Princeton Rod and Gun Club on March 30th at 6pm.
