Lake Protectors Training
August 6 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Description: The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) staff will join with Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District (HCSWCD) to host a Lake Protectors training on August 6 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in Speculator, NY, in the pavilion at Sacandaga Park and River Walk. This event is part of Adirondack Water Week, a week-long celebration of all our amazing water resources in the Adirondack Park.
At this training, participants will learn to identify, survey, and record data about aquatic invasive species so they can join the hundreds of other volunteers protecting our Adirondack lakes.
During this event, there will be hands on identification of invasive species and examples of plant collection with aquatic rakes. All registered participants will get an aquatic rake to take with them, thanks to HCSWCD!
