Weed & Algae Seminar

July 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

A seminar has been scheduled to educate, provide answers and contacts on the practical knowledge about invasive & nuisance aquatic plants and algae.

While some of the growths are cyclic, there are real concerns with invasive aquatic species and accelerated growth due to climate warming and changes in seasonal weather patterns.  Cottagers are well aware of their property values and when excess weed growth or the appearance of algae occurs in and around the bays, questions arise.

When:  Saturday July 14

Where:  Baxter Ward Community Centre, 279 Honey Harbour Road, Port Severn

Time:   10am to 12pm – followed by Q&A and BBQ Lunch!

Featured Speakers regarding Eurasian Water Milfoil:
– David Lynch, Six Mile Lake
– Peter Andrews, Farlain Lake Community Association, Eurasian Watermilfoil Control Project Coordinator
– Stephen Cartwright, Canadian Waterfront Services

Featured Speaker regarding Algae:
– Aisha Chiandet, Severn Sound Environmental Association
