Help control invasive weeds.... Adopt-A-Shorline

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cayuga County will be holding a training session on Saturday June 27th; 10:00 am at their offices; 248 Grant Ave. Auburn.

The Adopt-a-Shoreline training session will help interested citizens learn to identify, monitor and control invasive aquatic weeds on local lakes.

Invasive weeds are devastating to local bodies of water. Eurasian water milfoil, curly leaf pondweed and water chestnut are causing problems for boaters and fishermen, they reduce waterfront property values, disrupt the growth of native plants and can interfere with fish reproduction.

Pre-Registration is not required, but would be appreciated. Call CCE at 255-1183 for more information.
