Maine Milfoil Initiative

Maine Milfoil Initiative—a collaboration between Saint Joseph’s College and several Maine lakes associations and volunteer groups—has culminated their work with the publication of the Maine Citizens’ Guide to Invasive Aquatic Plant Management. This is a nuts-and-bolts guide for lake groups and citizens on how to develop a management program to stop the proliferation of non-native variable-leaf milfoil and other invasive aquatic plants.

Since 2009, the Maine Milfoil Initiative has fought to help prevent the spread of non-native variable-leaf milfoil, manage its eradication, and study its effects on the ecology of Maine lakes. The joint effort began with Saint Joseph’s College, the Lakes Environmental Association (Bridgton), Maine Congress of Lakes Associations (Belgrade), the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program, and nine lake associations. Their goal: to stop the proliferation of the non-native plant that has resulted in dense growths in several of southern Maine’s lakes, including Sebago Lake where the College is located.
