Help Protect Adirondack Waters from Invasive Species

Get on-board with the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program’s 10th annual aquatic invasive plant training program! Learn aquatic plant identification tips and survey techniques for both native and aquatic invasive plants. You’ll also get a sneak peak at other aquatic invaders on the move such as zebra mussel, Asian clam, spiny waterflea and more.

The training is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP by June 17 to hsmith@tnc.org and provide your name, contact info, training location and lake of interest.

Sessions are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

June 28, Darrin Fresh Water Institute, Bolton Landing
or
June 30, Wanakena Ranger School on Cranberry Lake

Volunteers are asked to conduct an annual survey on an Adirondack lake or pond of their choice. To-date, more than 472 aquatic enthusiasts surveyed 266 Adirondack waterways. From the Fulton Chain to Lake Champlain – volunteer efforts are making a difference! Early detections of new invasive plant infestations provide the best chance for successful eradication.

Are you a returning volunteer? Feel free to join us for a half day or full day refresher course. Or pass this along and invite someone new!

Thank you, and see you on the water!
