Volunteers are sought to help rid Lake Tahoe's shoreline of water weeds Sunday at Baldwin Beach in South Lake Tahoe.
Volunteers will work in a large swale, similar to a shallow pond, adjacent to Lake Tahoe, which is infested with Eurasian watermilfoil, one of Tahoe's most prolific aquatic weeds.
Help is needed to remove barriers, pull out dead milfoil and install new barriers in the swale. Volunteers can be of any age or ability.
The introduced species has infested the Tahoe Keys and has spread to scenic Emerald Bay. Once established, the invasive weed can crowd out native plants, interfere with recreation, detract from scenic beauty and facilitate the establishment of invasive warm-water fish.
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency is coordinating the community event with the League to Save Lake Tahoe and U.S. Forest Service.
Registration is recommended. For more information or to register, contact Flavia Sordelet at (530) 541-5388 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)
Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at email@example.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
