Come out to Alpha Lake and learn how you can help survey our lakes and rivers for Yellow Flag Iris. Learn how to identify and report this invasive plant.

Bring your SUP, canoe, or kayak and head out to patrol the lake for Yellow Flag Iris (optional)! Yellow Flag Iris is an invasive species that takes over wetlands, lakes, and rivers, out-competing native species, reducing biodiversity, and blocking water flow. Patches of this plant that are reported will be removed from the wetland or lake.
