The NH Department of Environmental Services is offering free training
for lake water sampling and for identifying exotic, and native, aquatic plants (weeds). The workshops will be held in Concord NH, on Saturday, June 2, from 8:30-12 in the morning.
The water sampling training is essential for participating in the Volunteer Lake Assessment Program, which the CLPA has done for the past ten years. Most of our water samplers have retired, or moved away, so we need new ones. The Weed Watcher program is important for early identification of invasive weeds, if any, entering Canobie Lake. Our best chance of preventing spread is to catch it early. Volunteer watchers are needed.
These workshops are well-organized and present a lot of good information. They are an opportunity to meet the DES subject-matter experts. And you can ask them any questions you may have. I'm planning to attend. If you would like to go also, send me an email at: wesCLPA@myfairpoint.net . Or, you can check the DES web site, and register there.
I hope to see you there,
