Since 1998, hundreds ofvolunteers have learned how to identify, survey, and record data about aquatic invasive plants and animals impacting Adirondack lakes. Every summer, APIPP hosts a number of trainings and orientations (in-person and online) to prepre folks to get out on the water. Follow our social media, get on our listserv, or explore our events calendar to know when the next Lake Protector Corps training is taking place. Once trained, select an Adirondack water body of interest to track plant growth throughout the summer. Adopt part of a waterbody, one lake, or several! The survey season runs July through September and then submit data to APIPP's Aquatic Invasive Species staff.
Below are all the past trainings, identification guides, survey protocols, and adoption map tools you need to get involved.
