Our society is facilitating a lake-wide community based initiative for property owners to remove Flowering Rush (Butomus umbellatus) along their foreshores.

We have obtained permitting from FLNRO, have posted the literature to educate residents on the appropriate conditions and timing of removal, effective removal to prevent the spread, and safe disposal (below). We hope to reduce infestations in the short term and control the exponential spread we are seeing.
