CommentsCircumnavigated lake to look for Egeria. Found scattered plants in several locations (see map) - more widespread than last year - though still doesn't appear dense. Partly sunny, calm. Most submersed plants at north end of lake, Nymphaea is widespread. Many bryozoans on submersed wood along east shore.
