Invasive Plants / Storytelling
August 9, 2012  

Reporter Susan Kimball brought us up to speed on the ongoing battle against milfoil and other invasive aquatic plants. 23 lake systems in Maine are already infested. We'll look at the progress and setbacks in the fight to preserve our lakes and ponds with Jacolyn Bailey, who is a Doctoral Candidate in Milfoil Research at UMaine, and Dennis Spinney of the West Pond Association. Plus, we spoke with Deena Weinstein, an accomplished storyteller about the art of storytelling.
