On Thursday, October 1, from 4:30–6:30 p.m., Saint Joseph’s College will host a free workshop geared toward educating the public about milfoil, an invasive aquatic plant that is taking over Sebago Lake and other Maine water sources. Presented by the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program, the session will inform community members on the issue of infestation, how to identify milfoil, and the steps individuals can take to help in its eradication.
The workshop is open to the public and will be held in Room HA1 of the Harold Alfond Center on the College’s Standish campus. This event is an excellent opportunity for those who wish to learn more about certification, reporting protocols, and becoming part of Sebago’s Rapid Response Team.
