September 29 was another warm fall Saturday and another day of cutting cattails at pHake Lake. This time volunteers concentrated on the south shore of the lake, where access to the lake was almost totally blocked.

After cattails were cut, they were piled into boats and hauled across the lake to the boat landing area, where they were piled for later collection and mulching or composting.

The south shore access was dramaticlly improved, as you can see from these photos!

We also spend some time clearing more cattails to the west of the boat landing:

Cattail cutting will is scheduled to continue for the next two workdays so long as the weather cooperates. So if you’d like to have fun splashing around in the lake while improving the BFS, please join us on October 6 or October 20.
