This summer, we have been scouting Otsego County waterbodies for European frog-bit and other aquatic invasive species. Yesterday, with the help of Paul Lord (SUNY Oneonta BFS and CRISP) and several volunteers from the Otsego Lake Association and SUNY Oneonta, we removed approximately 20 plants from Clarke Pond in Springfield. Thanks to all who helped! We'll be tackling water chestnut and frog-bit in Silver Lake tomorrow, check our calendar if you can help! ... See MoreSee Less
