The Adirondack Landowners Association (ALA) has announced the beginning of a three-part education program targeting boat and trailer owners to reduce the spread of aquatic invasive species.
According to a statement issued to the press, the ALA has succeeded getting the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to include an educational insert about preventing the spread of invasive species in all boat and trailer registration renewals by mail.
The ALA will also supply signage and brochures to the various County Clerks who operate local DMV offices in Northern New York, the statement said. The ALA plans to work with North Country business owners and town government officials to have posters and handouts about preventing the spread of invasive species displayed throughout the Adirondacks.
The Adirondack Landowners Association represents approximately 3,500 members who collectively own almost 250,000 acres of private land in the Adirondacks.
