NEW GLOUCESTER — The Sabbathday Lake Association will host its second meeting of the year at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Grange Hall. The agenda will include a business meeting, an update on the annual water testing by Jennifer Jespersen from FB Environmental and a presentation on milfoil and the new Invasive Plant Patrol on Sabbathday Lake.

Starting at 10 a.m., there will be a wildlife and water (riparian habitats) program presented by the Chewonki Foundation. The program focuses on the riparian areas at the water’s edge and the animals that depend on the habitat. They will bring several mounted and three live animals that depend on this habitat.

The mission of the association is to protect the lake and surrounding watershed by advocacy and public education. A summer boat monitoring program is sponsored by the association with courtesy boat inspections at the Outlet Beach boat launch ramp. The program is designed to educate the boating public regarding the risks of invasive aquatic species of vegetation from entering the lake that can destroy the natural aquatic structure and recreational value of the water body.

Those who cannot attend the meeting and wish to join may send a check to Sabbathday Lake Assoc., Attention: Anne Maurice, 10 Cushman Drive, New Gloucester, ME 04260.
