Creque Dam needs our help

Dear Friends,

This is an ENVIRONMENTAL CALL TO ACTION:

Over the last three months Creque Dam pond has been completely covered by a highly invasive aquatic plant known as WATER LETTUCE.
Already all nesting water birds have been forced to leave the pond.
The really bad news is that if it isn't removed now it may become impossible to tackle this problem. This highly invasive plant will drain the pond of water. We need to act fast:
THE MASS OF VEGETATION WILL DOUBLE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS!
A CITIZEN CREW IS URGENTLY NEEDED TO FIGHT THIS INVASION!!!

Using a FLATHEAD STEEL RAKE (not a leaf rake) we will snag and pull the water lettuce from the pond. A crew of 10-15 people can empty the pond in a few hours but.... WE NEED STRONG BODIES WITH STEEL RAKES!!!

WILL YOU JOIN US TO RESTORE CREQUE DAM POND?
SUNDAY JUNE 17 9:00 AM UNTIL
Cold beer and soft drinks provided by Mt Victory Camp after the job is done.
WE NEED MINIMUM 15 people to pull this off!!!
CAN U COME ???
CAN U BRING OTHERS??

CAN YOU PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO YOUR TWITTER/FACEBOOK/EMAIL FRIENDS?

How can this be controlled going forward. If it filled the pond in 3 months time how do you get to the root of the problem?
