Many species of aquatic weeds have been found in our lakes. With the exception of those in the “Watch-List” Section, the weeds listed on these pages have actually been found in our lakes or the abutting wetlands. Learn what they are and what they look like so you can help us monitor the changing weed-scape of the lakes.

Lost Lake/Knops Pond Resource Management Plan
