A sunny clear day
Today Rose and Dean patrolled all of Dolloff Cove and Otter Cove. Everything looked quite normal. We did find 2 suspicious naiads on the north and south sides of the Dolloff Cove Peninsula. We thought they looked odd because of the red stem, however, bringing them on board, we saw they did NOT have the spongy texture nor the barbed leaves associated with the invasive species. THANKS SO MUCH for the laminated handouts which helped so much in identifying the plants. To be sure of our diagnosis, we paddled over to Don Yurewicz's dock to get his opinion as well. He had a hand lens and confirmed they were not the invasive species. Specifically, we covered the following grid numbers today, Sunday, August 15, 2021.
3241 through 3251, 3208, 3288 through 3292, 3251, 3210, 3211, 3332, 3333, 3373, 3412,3451, 3491, 3531, 3532, 3450, 3410, 3446 through 3449, 3404 through 3406, 3363, 3364, 3322, 3323, 3381, 3382, 3170 through 3172, and 3133 through 3136. Dean Malouta and Rose Haché
