Adirondack Invasive Species Training Offered

Participants in the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program’s 10th annual aquatic invasive plant training program will learn aquatic plant identification tips and survey techniques for both native and aquatic invasive plants.

The training is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP by June 17 to 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
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.

Early detections of new invasive plant infestations provide the best chance for successful eradication.

Returning volunteers are free to join the training for a half day or full day refresher course.
