The event is sponsored by the Friends of Green Lake.
The clean-up efforts will be focused on removing milfoil that accumulates on the shoreline and grows in shallow water around the dock. “Milfoil is an invasive weed that can completely choke a lake,” says Friends of Green Lake President Gayle Garman. “It covered over 85% of Green Lake in the mid-1990s. Remember the big blue weed harvester that was in the middle of Green Lake?”
Families are welcome at the event, but children should be accompanied by an adult. Rakes, buckets, boots, and gloves will be provided, or you can bring your own.
Gayle says that they will need to know how many volunteers will be coming, so that they can get enough rakes and buckets from the Parks Department. RSVP to friendsofGL [at] gmail.com.
