2024 Aquatic Invasive Species Monitoring Event

  • -

Join Us to Monitor Invasive Species in Lake George

Volunteer monitoring invasive species at Lake George

Over the weekend of August 10-11, you will survey a section of shoreline for aquatic invaders, primarily non-native plants as well as mussels, snails, and fish if you see them. You can complete the survey of your area at any time during these three days. We will have a training before the event to help you with our Survey123 reporting app and with species identification while on the water. AIS monitoring in the lake is important for early detection of new invaders, such as hydrilla, that may pass by the inspection station and boat launch stewards.
