Help Remove Water Chestnut To Keep Lake Clear

Support Lake Musconetcong on July 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Port Morris Park in Landing by helping to remove water chestnut by canoe and kayak.

A macrophyte study conducted in 2008 found isolated patches of water chestnut on the lake. One year later, this plant pest covered 30 percent of the lake. Removals are needed every year to treat this infestation.

Bring a reusable water bottle and sunscreen; own boats and life vests if possible; and wear clothes that can get wet. No experience necessary. Must be 16 years or older.

Lunch will be provided. Rain date is July 17.

Reservations required. Contact Melyssa Garcia, AmeriCorps Watershed Ambassador, at
