Do You Know What’s Lurkin’ in Your Lake and Doin’ the Bloomin’ Along Your Shoreline?

There are several aquatic and wetland invasive species in the Northwood’s that have the potential to change, or have already changed, the biodiversity of our lakes, rivers, streams (including trout streams), marshes, wetlands, cranberry bogs, ephemeral ponds.  These species have likely found their way into our waters through unclean boats, trailers, and recreational equipment, inappropriate disposal of bait and aquarium species, and migration through connected waterways.
