Plant Identification (Aquatic and Terrestrial) Page
This page focuses primarily on the aquatic plant identification and aquatic invasive's that are either threatening the lake currently (i.e. they are in neighboring lakes) or that will be threatening us directly in the next few years (i.e. they are already in the North East); as well as those invasive's that are sadly already in Eagle Lake.
