Volunteers needed this weekend at Puttenahalli Lake

Work on the Diversion Channel is proceeding well and with a reasonably good monsoon this year we hope to divert lots more rain water into our Puttenahalli Lake. We may even see our wish fulfilled finally – the lake bed covered with water and not a bit of ground to be seen!

Now, when the water level is at its lowest, is the right time to remove the invasive weed Salvinia Molesta from the lakebed. Will you help us get the lake ready for the monsoon? Help us get rid of the weed and bring the birds back to our lake? Help us get the lake ready for April showers?

Please volunteer your time and effort for just three hours this weekend!!

Dates: Sat. 9th and Sun. 10th March.
Time: 7 to 10 a.m.
Age: 16 years and above. There’s no risk involved but we would like to focus and not have to supervise children. 🙂

Volunteers will be required to wear comfortable shoes (not open sandals) and a hat. Gloves optional.

Email confirmation puttenahalli.lake@gmail.com will be very welcome but you can always drop in unannounced, pick up a rake and scoop out the weed this weekend!
