Biologists in Maine and New Hampshire say they have confirmed discovery of an invasive plant in a body of water on the border of the two states. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection says the species is European naiad and was found in the Salmon Falls River.
The program, which is free, all day long, five days a week, is the result of the school's successful BAM initiative, according to Acton Elementary School Principal Tricia Boivin. BAM, a program offered for one or two hours each week, introduced local preschoolers to books, art and music - hence, its name.
Biologists from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection , together with their New Hampshire counterparts, have confirmed a late September discovery of the invasive species European naiad in a 1040-acre impoundment within Salmon Falls River, a border water body with shorelines in Lebanon and Acton, Maine and Milton, New Hampshire. The impoundment includes Northeast, Milton and Town House Ponds.
