MECHANICAL HARVESTER PILOT PROGRAM
In 2009, CLI conducted a ten-day trial of mechanical harvesting to remove giant salvinia and water hyacinth from Caddo Lake. The work was done in partnership with a local Caddo Lake landowner, who provided the harvester. The planning, implementation and reporting for the project were also supported by funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the City of Marshall, Texas. The report on the harvester trial can be seen here.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM CADDO LAKE INSTITUTE! We are so THANKFUL for YOU! Conservation still receives only 2% of philanthropic dollars overall, so as you consider your year-end giving, we hope you’ll help us leave our natural world better than we found it. Caddo Lake...
