The PLA participates in the DES Weed Watchers Program, taking a proactive approach to exotic plant control. Weed infestations lead to diminished wildlife habitat, decreased recreational potential, and lowered property values. Volunteers are instructed on how to take a weed survey, what to look for, and who to contact if there is a problem. Anyone can become a Weed Watcher. The only equipment a volunteer will need is a boat, a partner or two, and a nice bright summer day! For further information contact: Liz Garlo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
