$100,000 Grant will Aid in the Fight to Eradicate Eurasian Milfoil - Eurasian milfoil, originally native to parts of Eurasia and North Africa, is now found in waterways across New York, including Black Lake, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation. The weed’s stems can grow up to 10 feet in length, and its green feathery leaves routinely gum up shorelines, can choke out the habitat of native plants and fish and are blamed by some for ruining overall water quality.
