What do volunteers do?  In 2011 we completed work on the "319" grant projects, but there may still be opportunities for you to help your neighbors on Panther Pond and other Raymond lakes, working on conservation projects. The work may involve (for example):

  • Planting rain gardens, vegetative borders, or bank-stabilizing bushes
  • Spreading landscaping materials like erosion-control mulch and crushed rock
  • Digging and filling drip-line trenches and runoff intercepts
  • Building and installing rubber-blade diverters in driveways
  • Constructing benthic mats for invasive-plant control
  • Pulling milfoil in shallow-water areas

From time to time, there may also be opportunities for part-time paid work as courtesy boat inspectors, checking for invasive plants on boats and trailers. And there is a continuing need for volunteer certified plant patrollers to check lakes for new invasive-plant infestations. Get trained and come on aboard! We can help you get started.

 

What else? We are still looking for more people to help with the annual invasive-waterplant survey. It's critical to stop the invaders before they get established in the lakes. The training is free, and it's another excuse to get out on the water.

 

And we're still looking for people to help with the annual meeting and picnic.

 

There may be other opportunities for volunteers, too, so please check the website occasionally, and watch for the annual PPA letter.

 

How can I volunteer? Just get in touch with us and let us know what you're interested in, and how we can get in touch with you. (TIA)
