Prize-winning reporter and The Death and Life of the Great Lakes author Dan Egan is set to deliver the keynote address at the 2018 FUND for Lake George Annual Meeting on Saturday, July 7, 2018, at the Sagamore Resort Conference Center.
An account of how invasive species have devastated the largest freshwater ecosystem on earth, Egan’s The Death and Life of the Great Lakes shows what the future could hold for Adirondack waterways if invasive species are not stopped. Only hours from the Adirondacks, the Great Lakes are among the main sources of invasive species directly threatening the region.
The Adirondacks is more vulnerable to aquatic invasive species (AIS). New York already has the highest number of non-native forest pests in the country and is adjacent to the continent’s main gateway for the introduction and spread of aquatic invasives—the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway.
