Chasing the Water Chestnut
HooRWA is once again partnering with the Rensselaer Land Trust to help reduce the amount of water chestnut plants in the Hoosic River above the Johnsonville Dam. This noxious invasive reduces aquatic life and proves virtually impenetrable to swimmers and boats. Pulling it is strenuous activity. HooRWA participants should leave their boats by the dam boat launch, off Route 67, at 9:00 a.m., and park at the Fire House, 5 River Road – just off county route 111. Length of shift is determined by the individual. Waders and gloves are useful. Bring water; food provided. Participants must preregister. Leader: Kristina Younger; call her at 518-527-6577 or email her at kristinayoungerRLT@gmail.com by June 15th for preregistration and to receive a free lunch.
