Hello there its Joey, the Mystic River green team supervisor. This is our first weekly update with many more to come! Each week the Mystic River Green Team will post our progress of what we accomplish on the water . This week went awesome in total we collected 310 baskets of water chestnuts with each basket weighing 20~25 pounds. That is about 7,000 pounds of the invasive species gone!!
We had an event planed on Friday with the other branches of the green team that went off without a hitch. We spent a total of three hours on the water hand picking. In total we collected 75 baskets of water chestnuts with their assistance.
