Invasive plants are the enemy Saturday starting at 9 a.m. at Trout Pond in Noyac. Southampton Town Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni will be on hand with workers from the town's Parks and Recreation Department to remove invasive cabomba weed from the pond.

"Volunteers are encouraged to wear gloves and be prepared to get a little dirty," a release said.

Large rakes and skimmer nets are needed and should be outfitted with floatation devices should they escape your grip, and wetsuits will be welcomed. Community service hours are available for students.
