Weed Watchers Wanted
Weed Watchers are a group of lake residents who volunteer to monitor Beaver lake for Milfoil and other Exotic Weeds.
The Lake is broken up into 7 zones and each volunteer is responsible for monitoring his or her zone (usually by canoe or kayak) once a week throughout the season. If a suspicious weed is found, the Weed Watcher pulls a sample of the weed, and sends it to the DES Lab in Concord for further study. Many samples have been tested in the last 4 years, but luckily all have been found to be native weeds.
We are always looking for new volunteers.
If you are interested in becoming a Weed Watcher please contact a BLIA Board member.
