Getting right to the points

The Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) has been conducting a Floating Friday event in which volunteers are invited to explore Meizinger Lake at the Hand Hollow Conservation Area in East Chatham and to help clear out the invasive water chestnuts. CLC has used a water tractor to pull out the plants, but clusters near the shore need to be pulled out by hand. Retired CLC Executive Director Peter Paden shows how and displays a water chestnuts on his paddle Friday, July 16. Volunteer Coordinator J.J. Kathe says that they have some kayaks at the lake for use by volunteers; or people can bring their own boats. The Floating Friday events will continue through September. The hours are 9 a.m. to noon.
