Save Union Bay Association Annual Meeting Monday At Center For Urban Horticulture

The Save Union Bay Association is having its annual public meeting on Monday, the 23rd, at 7:30pm at the UW Botanic Gardens’ Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street).

The information says:
The public is invited to attend the Save Union Bay Association (SUBA) Annual Meeting and  learn what SUBA been doing this year and participate in planning for next year.
The state Department of Ecology describes Union Bay as a success story for improving habitat and health of the lake. The UW has used SUBA’s $75,000 grant from the Department of Ecology as a training tool for how to write successful grants.  
The UW Athletic Program proudly proclaims that they have worked to clean up the lake, improved the crew practice experience, and improved boat access for football games.
Adam Kleven of Aquatechnix will describe the work he’s done to manage milfoil on Union Bay. Aquatic weed survey results showed successful removal of nearly all invasive milfoil and pondweed from the shoreline area in Union Bay.  
There were no toxic blooms in Union Bay this year. Native aquatic plants are important for the viability and health of the lake as they provide food for fish and other wildlife. They do not form floating mats like invasive milfoil does.
