From our Weed Watcher Co-Captain Steve Soreff:
The Annual Weed Watcher Training is both a refresher course for veteran Weed Watchers and a training for new members – Welcome! First, of all, thank you for being a Weed Watcher. You are protecting and preserving our lake. Member Therese Thompson, our area invasive species expert, will conduct the training. Material covered can be found in her slideshow here: . You may want to review it before the training or even print it out for future reference. It will cover the basics of what to look for, how to survey your area of the lake, and what to do if you find something.
This year is the 14th year of the of the rejuvenated Weed Watchers. To celebrate over a decade of Weed Watching and in memory of one of its pioneers, Lee Bartlett, there are now new Weed Watcher tee shirts for all volunteers who have been active during the 2020 season and for new members at no charge. Lee is the one with a crutch in the group wearing the old tee shirts. What spirit!
And to the left is a picture of what the new tee shirts will look like. They are eye-catching and elegant.
Several points should be mentioned:
- Remember, attendance at the training counts as part of your monthly reported hours.
- If you are a new Weed Watcher please, register with Steve Soreff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 603 895-6120.
- You will be added to the Weed Watcher email list and assigned an area of the lake to survey.
You can join the training via Zoom by emailing Steve Soreff to get the link, ID, and passcode for the training. All are welcome!
Again, thank you for being a Weed Watcher!
