Public meetings will be held on Elodea in Interior Alaska in the following locations:
March 7 – Fairbanks at 12-2 pm, Fairbanks City Hall
March 7 – Nenana at 6-8 pm, Dementieff Tribal Hall
March 8 – North Pole at 6-8 pm, North Pole City Hall
Elodea is an invasive plant that has infested Chena Slough, Chena Lake, parts of the Chena River, and Totchaket Slough, downstream of Nenana. Learn more about the problem, how it could impact the fish in our waters, and how Alaskans are trying to solve it at a public meeting on March 7th. Experts from the state and outside will present on the invasive aquatic weed. Options discussed include ceasing to monitor & control Elodea, continuing manual control or herbicide treatment. Public questions and comment are vital part of this process.
