If you have some spare time on the next rainy day and want to help protect our lake from invasive species, I have an easy DIY for you
All you need is a small terra cotta pot and some rope. Tie the rope to the pot (as pictured) and then tie the pot on or under your dock so that it is suspended freely and upside down in the water. If there are any invasive mussel veligers in your area, they will attach to the outside and/or the inside of the hanging pot, as it creates a nice home for them.
Quick and easy early detection tool that you can pull up regularly throughout the summer to check for any inhabitants
Any detections can be reported to FOCA, directly on the EDD website (https://www.eddmaps.org/ontario/) or by emailing LakeStewardship@steenburglake.com
