The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting a public meeting focusing on managing hydrilla in the Harris Chain of Lakes. The meeting is in Tavares on Monday, October 14, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Tavares Civic Center, 100 E. Caroline St.

The focus of this meeting is to gather input and feedback from stakeholders about future hydrilla management activities on the Harris Chain of Lakes. Public input from a wide variety of user groups on this system, which includes Lake Harris, Little Lake Harris, Lake Eustis, Lake Griffin, Lake Dora, Lake Yale and Lake Beauclair, is critical to create a well-balanced approach to managing hydrilla.

The meeting will provide updates of FWC’s monitoring and management efforts followed by a plant management presentation discussing current conditions and proposed treatment areas. Following the presentations, there will be a period for public comments when the public will have the opportunity to ask questions or provide comments.

For more information on this public meeting, contact Nathalie Visscher at or 321-228-3364.
