Volunteers Needed for Water Quality Surveys

Interested saving Angle Lake from the horrors of dense weed infestations? While also learning how to identify water plants, too?
The Spring 2010 Algae Bloom

Edward Montry, a lake resident and water quality volunteer, has performed our twice annual noxious weed surveys for the past three years.  The good news is that he has not found any harmful weeds to date – the bad news, he will not be able to perform these duties this year.  We are looking for a one or more individuals to help with the monitoring this year.  What is required?  
  1. A small boat (e.g. canoe) 
  2. Personal flotation device (PFD) and any other required water safety equipment
  3. Ability to attend a training session on June 19th or 26th
  4. Approximately one field day in early July and one field day in late August or early September to collect and read samples.
King County will provide training, equipment and a weed identification book for FREE to volunteers.  If you are interested to learn more about this opportunity to serve your community, please write us anglelakesc@gmail.com or refer to the King County Web Site.

A special Thank You to Keith Murphy of Post 31 for stepping up to help with the lake monitoring this year.

If more people sign up to help the load will be lessened and we can achieve the best results.

Please contact us if you become available to assist.
