Saratoga PLAN recently led a community-wide effort to begin removal of an invasive outcropping of water chestnut plants on Fish Creek, the outlet of Saratoga Lake.
Over 36 volunteers participated.
Greg Redling, Saratoga PLAN stewardship coordinator, said, “It was great to get so much help protecting this beautiful resource, and everyone agreed we should do it again soon.”
Prior to the event, Capitol Mohawk Partner provided information about the invasive species, as well as a tutorial on the proper procedures for water chestnut removal. Kayak Shak generously provided boats for those in need.
