In some cases, there can be too much of a good thing. From nuisance natives to invasive species, join us for Part 2 of our Lake Management Lecture Series to discover a new appreciation for aquatic plants, what happens when there are too many, and how to manage them. For adults.

Meet Lindsay

In addition to being the new Aquatic Programs Coordinator, I am also currently earning my degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences with a focus in aquatic ecosystem management. I have been immersed in the world of aquatic invasive species for a year and a half and continue to learn something new every day. Did you know that there’s an invasive fish called the Northern Snakehead with ferocious teeth that can survive on land for up to four days? Now you do, but I bet you wish you didn’t!
