Water Chestnut Handpull
Water chestnut grow to create a floating mat, depleting oxygen in the water for other aquatic life, making it very difficult to paddle and causing damage to boat motors.
Join the AmeriCorps Ambassador and remove this invasive plant from Lake Musconetcong. You will be provided a kayak or canoe to paddle out onto the lake and weed. There will also be a weed harvester on-site. Water chestnut is weakly rooted and easily removed by hand. Last year's event removed over 10,000 lbs. in one day!
The AmeriCorps Watershed Ambassador program is dedicated to promoting watershed stewardship through education and direct community involvement.

Set aside the Saturday after Thanksgiving (10am-12pm) to burn off those extra calories for our annual hike at the Point Mountain Reserve trail. Hikers will use the Ridge Trail, which cuts through the forests and a mountain stream. A scenic overlook along this trail provides a view of distant mountains and farmland in Warren County. The trail is diverse and challenging at times, and includes a steep and rocky incline. Bring a snack, water and binoculars. All are welcome, novice and expert alike. The meeting place for this hike is 9:45 am at the gravel parking lot on Point Mountain Road approximately 0.3 miles from Route 57. MWA members are free, non-members are asked to donate $3/person ($12 max/family.) To register call Kyle at 908-537-7060 or email email@example.com.
