Upcoming Events
of the Higley Association

In preparation for the September 12-16 drawdown of Higley Flow and milfoil pulling activities for 2018, we have scheduled a workshop on August 30 from 1:00 – 4:00 PM.  The workshop will be held at the new Colton Fire Station community room; it will be led by representatives from the Partnerships For Invasive Species Management, Erin Vennie-Vollrath and Megan Pistolese.  We will be discussing both aquatic and terrestrial invasive plants, with a focus on Variable Leaf Watermilfoil.  Attendees are encouraged to bring samples of any plants they would like identified by our ‘experts’.  If you have questions, please give us a call at 315-265-2255.  We will be bringing some materials to hand out for identification and pulling of milfoil, including mesh bags, and will give some insight into how the 2017 milfoil pull worked.  Thank you for your continued support!  Joanne and Andrea
