Boating Tips

"Clean Your Boat Before You Float"

Boating Tips:

  • Do not boat, swim or fish in weedy waters
  • Clean the outside of your boat, motors, trailers and anchor before and after launching.
  • Flush the engine with water to get rid of any plant fragments.
  • Check oars, paddles and the outside of paddled craft such as kayaks, canoes, and rowboats, which can easily pick up plant material in shallow waters.
  • Dispose of the fragments far from the water body.

Birds and Invasive Insects

Birdwatcher's Short Fieldguide to Holes in Trees

During the Annual Great Backyard Bird Count you can look for and report any potential signs of new infestations of invasive forest insects. Click Here for the field guide.

Feed the Birds

Try growing some native species as ornamentals and as food for birds and pollinators.

  • Encourage mating and nesting birds in spring by providing feeders and houses.
  • Keep pets away from birds and wild animals.
  • Do not use noisy machines around nesting sites.

Casco Land

Casco Land is in a watershed, and what you do on your property can affect the health of the lakes, streams and wetlands through "non-point-source pollution". All residents must participate to help maintain the rural atmosphere and natural beauty preferred by most Casco residents and vacationers.

Buffer Strips

One way to lessen the problem of nutrient pollution that washes into a lake or stream and affect the quality of water is to plant a vegetated buffer strip. These strips are areas where plants have grown naturally or have been planted. They are located uphill from water bodies. Buffers are designed to catch surface flow, subsurface flow and deeper groundwater flow. The plants remove sediment, nutrients and other pollutants.

Casco Lakes and Ponds

The following lakes and ponds are within the boudaries of the Town of Casco: Coffe Pond, Crescent Lake, Dumpling Pond, Hog Meadow Pond, Dr. Johnson's Pond, Mill Pond, Owl Pond, Parker Pond, Pleasant Lake, Sebago Lake, Thomas Pond, Thompson Lake.

Invasive Plants - Land

What can I do to promote Maine's native landscape?

  • Avoid disturbing natural areas or clearing land of native plants.
  • Use organic methods, such as compost, composted manure and natural mulches reather than chemical herbicides and pesticides whenever possible. These allow beneficial insects and birds to survive and do their work.
  • Purchase only propagated native plants not those dug from the wild.
  • Control invasive non-native plants in your landscape.

The following plants found in Casco are considered invasive by the state of Maine:

  • Purple Loosestrife
  • Japanese Barberry
  • Asiatic Bittersweet
  • Japanese Knotweed
  • Smooth and Common Buckthorn
  • Non-native honeysuckles
  • Garlic Mustard
  • Multiflora Rose
  • Phragmites
  • The Common Reed
  • Shrubby Honeysuckle
  • Rugosa Rose
  • Winged Burning Bush, Euonymous Alata
