Plant Surveys August 7th and 9th, 2017

The Friends of Cobbossee Watershed and the TPA surveyed two shallow sections of Torsey Pond.

Members met at the Readfield Boat launch on Monday August 7th and again on Wednesday August 9th in the North End Cove to survey aquatic plants. We did find a large patch of native milfoil in the North End Cove. It was very exciting to discover the plants and have Friends of Cobbossee confirm they are a harmless native variety of milfoil.

Plant Paddle July 15th, 2017

Lovely day on the water learning how to survey our pond for aquatic plants. Sponsored by the The Friends of Cobbossee Watershed and the TPA.

Members met at the Quiet Harbor Boat launch and collected aquatic samples. We then reviewed the samples on shore. Our goal is to set up a team to survey the pond in sections to help identify invasive aquatic species such as variable leaf milfoil and Eurasian Water- milfoil. Torsey Pond does have naturally occurring native milfoil. If we do have an infestation of an invasive aquatic plant, our second best line of defense is to catch it early and develop a plan to remove it. Our first line of defense is to prevent it from entering the pond with our Milfoil Program Courtesy Boat Inspections.
