NISSWA -- Curly leaf pondweed is a nuisance in many lakes and is spreading to lakes across the state. Because of its unique growth habit and plant characteristics, management of this exotic aquatic plant has been challenging.
A workshop to address curly leaf pondweed will run 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Nisswa Community Center.
The workshop will include how to identify this problem plant, specific measures for management and control and how to keep your lake in ecological balance. Representatives from local lake associations, government agencies and private applicators will be at the workshop to discuss their experiences in curly leaf pondweed management.
The workshop is designed for shoreland property owners, Master Gardeners, lake association leaders, lake management and natural resource professionals, and local government units.
