The workshops will give the community an opportunity to see, identify and learn about the different plant and insect species residing underneath aquatic vegetation in the lake. Topics include how certain species of insects help control the weed population naturally.
Participants can become familiar with the insects and plant species that play an important role in the delicate balance of the ecosystem of the lake.
The CLA, an organization that maintains the health and beauty of the lake, supports a "green" approach to controlling nuisance vegetation like Eurasian milfoil.
