ANVIL LAKE ASSOCIATION, INC.: Anvil Lake Aquatic Macrophyte Baseline Survey

Anvil Lake Association will conduct an Aquatic Macrophyte Baseline Survey using the point-intercept method. Rake sampling will be supplemented with scuba diving and use GPS mapped points. The littoral zone of this 398-acre lake will be mapped looking for increase bed density or plant distribution, to relate to the sediment core taken earlier.

Activities include: 1. development of a base map and database of Anvil lake sampling points for GPS location throughout the littoral zone. 2. conducting a point-intercept sampling survey of aquatic macrophytes using rake sampling techniques. 3. inventory/identify the existing aquatic macrophytes species and collect and prepare herbarium ready samples of the species collected. 4. map critical macrophyte beds with supplemental scuba diving linked to GPS readings.
