Tuesday:

Spent the day thoroughly covering the vast littoral zone of the North Basin and Markham Point. The area is starting to look better, only 1/2 of a bag was removed. Plants ranged from small single stemmed to multi stemmed and growing to the surface. The area should be checked again due to the wide spread out littoral zone.
