Duo Caught Illegally Taking Cattails from Wayne County Management Area


Two people are in trouble after illegally picking cattails from the Lakeshore Marshes Management Area in Wayne County.

According to the Department of Environmental Conservation, a 63-year old from Sodus and a 32-year old from Lyons were observed on Wednesday taking the cattail without a permit.

The plant’s leaves are used for wooden barrel caulking and can be sold for money.

The pair were issued tickets for the illegal cattail harvest.
