Leelanau Summinars: Eurasian Watermilfoil and Lake Leelanau featuring Brian Price and Annalise Povolo

August 1, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Eurasian Watermilfoil is an invasive aquatic plant first discovered in Lake Leelanau in 2018. Learn about the threat that this plant presents to Lake Leelanau, and by extension, to other Leelanau lakes. The presentation will help you to understand the threat posed by this plant and other invasive species, the location of infestations in Lake Leelanau, the biology of the plant, and its potential to spread and damage recreation and property values on the lake. Also learn about the partnership of the Lake Leelanau Lake Association and the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians to bring this plant under control and prevent its spread, especially the novel use of very large biodegradable burlap barriers to smother the invasive plants on the bottom of the lake using a deployment technique adapted from our Great Lakes commercial fishing heritage.
