Paddle and Pull, Goodyear Lake
07/09/2017 @ 1:00 pm to 3:00 pmFree
Kick of Invasive Species Awareness Week with a water chestnut pull in the Stump Lot portion of Goodyear Lake. OCCA and the Goodyear Lake Association have been partnering for a decade on removing the highly invasive water chestnut (Trapa natans) by hand. Come enjoy the results on a leisurely paddle, and we’ll pull any water chestnuts we find. Bring your own canoe/kayak, or reserve space in one of ours! Meet at 1 p.m. at the Portlandville Fishing Access Site on State Route 28, just south of the County Road 35A bridge. Bring water, sunscreen, and a hat. Please pre-register using our online form.
This event is part of the fourth annual New York Invasive Species Awareness Week. Visit https://stoptheinvasionny.com/ for information about other events happening this week.
