Aquatic Invasive Species Identification and Survey Training – Paul Smiths

This Aquatic Invasive Species Identification and Monitoring Techniques Training will teach participants how to identify submerged and floating invasive plants such as Eurasian watermilfoil, water chestnut and hydrilla, and invasive animals such as spiny waterflea and zebra mussels. It will also cover how to perform simple surveys to detect their presence in a waterbody. Detecting infestations early can lead to removal when the likelihood of successful eradication is highest. To-date, over 800 citizens have volunteered to survey nearly 400 Adirondack waterbodies. Their participation each year has established baseline distribution information for the region which helps guide APIPP’s prevention and management efforts.
