Aquatic Park Widgeon Grass and Algae Update

The Aquatic Park lagoon has a more than usual population of Widgeon Grass.  It is a salt tolerant freshwater species that grows in brackish water.  It can be seen covering the surface of the lagoon during its spring growth period.  The plant grows rapidly in the spring and the City harvests the grass every year in July and early August. That harvest is underway now.
