PROTECTING & ENJOYING Lake Lillinonah SINCE 2003
Posted: March 26, 2018
Volunteers Needed: Pontoon boats, boat drivers & kayaks (new this year for water chestnut removal)
As many of you have noticed, the amount of man-made garbage has been reduced over the years thanks to the volunteers of FOTL. Although we’ve had discussions about ‘skipping’ a year, we feel this event is very important to the community involvement with Lake Lillinonah, and to bring our members together for such a critical task. This year, we will hold Save the Lake Day a bit later in the year than normal and add a ‘weed harvesting’ effort to remove as much Water Chestnut as possible. Volunteers who have Kayaks will be deployed to the northern part of the lake where Water Chestnut populations are trying to establish. As always, we need as many pontoon boats as possible. Also, this year we are asking for members who have small aluminum rowboats to allow us to use them as vessels to put collected garbage and weeds in, in order to protect the pontoon boats from damage. Please contact us if you have a pontoon boat or a rowboat that we can count on. Don’t forget sunscreen, a hat, shoes that can get wet, and your smile – always appreciated.
Calling all volunteers! Debris Survey is September 16th
