Friday will begin at 1:00 pm at Birch Point starting with the first level of instruction in identifying invasive aquatic plants and continue at 8:30 am on the 14th leading to certification as an Invasive Plant Patroller for the Maine Volunteer Lakes Management Program (VLMP) with a sample survey on Pleasant Lake. Birch Point will function as the classroom center for both days. This is a perfect opportunity to get involved in this program to protect our lakes from invasive plants. The information you will gain from these classes will be applicable to all lakes in Maine and elsewhere. Lunch will be available at Birch Point on both days and soft drinks and bottled water will be supplied by the Island Falls Lakes Association. Please make your reservations for these classes by contacting Roberta Hill at 783-7733 or email@example.com, or call Birch Point Lodge at 207-463-2515 or Norm Harte at 207-463-3035. Canoes and kayaks needed! Come either day or, preferably, both days.
