Chain of Lakes for treatments through spring 2012 will be the focus
of a public meeting Aug. 31 from 6-8 p.m. in the Osceola County
Chambers in the Administrative Building at 1 Courthouse Square in
The draft plan includes revisions based on appropriate public
comments Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
invasive plant section biologists have received since last May from
public meetings in Lake Wales and Kissimmee.

updates from the FWC on lake enhancement projects and snail kites
on the Kissimmee Chain.
