Water Chestnut Pull at High Tor

July 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Finger Lakes Institute and CLWA for a water chestnut pull in the West River on July 6th at 9:00 am.

Water chestnut is a floating-leaved, annual aquatic plant that was found in the West River in 2014. Populations of this plant can form very dense mats of interlocking rosettes, shading out the water column and suppressing most other aquatic plant growth in the area. The good news is, hand pulling can be an effective management strategy.
