Although Invasive Species Awareness Week has wrapped up for this year, the work to combat the spread of aquatic invasives in our Adirondack lakes, ponds and other bodies of water is ongoing.
Here’s a recap of some recent coverage:

And here’s her recent story about the test trial of an herbicide to target milfoil on Minerva Lake: https://www.adirondackexplorer.org/stories/apa-approves-herbicide.
