On Tuesday, September 15th, LLFoR will be planting approximately 2,000 American Water-willow aquatic plants in the Kickapoo Creek area.Six Independent School District students and teachers who have been growing these plants in their aquatic tanks, will be planting them in six (6) inches of water on islands and some shorelines. The Onalaska High School FFA is hosting the event, and the FFA students will be cooking hamburgers and hot dogs for the students and volunteers. It will be a fun day, restoring lost habitat back into our lake. Other High Schools participating are Livingston, Coldspring-Oakhurst Consolidated, Corrigan Camden, Shepherd and Goodrich High Schools.
The host marina is The Waterfront Lodge / Pontoons (Onalaska), (936) 646-3525, and we will be using the pavilion area as the staging area. What we need are volunteers who will get in the water to help supplement the students in the planting. All you need is a sharpshooter shovel, life vest, and it is suggested you wear long old jeans and tennis shoes. Bring sunscreen if you need to protect yourself.
Start Time: 7:30AM
