In August and September of 2017, a group of 12 WLA board members and volunteers surveyed Watchic Lake for invasive plant species – none were found. This is the second year a thorough inventory of lake plants has been completed. As a member of the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program, we are asked to submit an inventory of the native plants found in the lake.

22 native plants were identified over the past two years. To learn more about the plants in the lake, and where to get additional information, click on Native Maine Plants Found in Watchic Lake Summer 2017.
Thanks to Jen and Martha Drew, Agnes and Rick Wiggin, Paul and Nancy McNulty, Cathy Watson, Wendi Rodrigueza, Patty Center, and Patty Guenthner and Owen Smith (with his son) for making our 2017 inventory day a success!
