AQUATIC WORKSHOP COMING SOON!
Aquatic Plant Management Workshop Available August 9 - The low runoff along the Pend Oreille River this year is sure to make aquatic plant management an early and constant issue for landowners. To help arm shoreline managers with the best control techniques, up to date permitting processes, and tools for management the PUD is partnering with the County Noxious Weed Control Board to organize an Annual Aquatic Weed Workshop that is FREE and open to the public. This year’s workshop will take place on August 9 at the Kalispel Wellness Center starting at 9:00 a.m., with presenters from the County Weed Board, Department of Ecology, the PUD and a variety of contractors. Participants will have the opportunity to handle and test a variety of aquatic vegetation removal tools and learn to identify beneficial native aquatic plants from noxious and invasive weeds. Presentations will also explain the benefits of maintaining a healthy native plant community both above and below the water line.
