On a positive note, local support has grown significantly and the use of salvinia weevils is now viewed as the best, long term solution to the problem. In fact, the Greater Caddo Lake Association is hosting a benefit barbeque this Labor Day weekend that will expand the production capacity of weevils around Caddo Lake. An article in Sunday's Marshall News Messenger provides details of the event and further describes the dire situation at Caddo Lake this summer. If you can, please make plans to attend this great event and help support efforts to protect this beautiful lake.
