Monitor Lakes and Ponds in the Adirondack Backcountry for Invasive Species

The citizen scientists who join the project will be trained to identify Aquatic Invasive Species that threaten the health of our Adirondack lakes and ponds. Participants will also have the opportunity to adopt a waterbody to survey. Workshops consist of classroom education on invasive species identification and data management, followed by a field portion on the water where participants learn and practice survey protocol. Surveys will focus on the Lake Champlain Basin.

Data collected by volunteers will aid APIPP in mapping the spread of harmful invasive species throughout the Adirondack Park, as well as identifying new introductions early on to initiate rapid response.
