Help Protect Our Lake
This video was created by the Lake George Association Published on Jan 11, 2013 Aquatic invasive species are non-native plants and animals that threaten native plants, wildlife, and their habitat. They also affect humans by degrading boating and fishing areas and reducing lake shore property values and tourism. Once established, eradication is almost impossible. You can help prevent the introduction of new invasive species into Lake George and other local waterways by making sure you clean, drain, and dry all boating, fishing, and other recreational equipment before you use it in a body of water.

At these summits, nation-leading experts will work with local steering committees to begin development of tailored action plans to address the causes of algal blooms in the twelve priority waterbodies across the state. The action plans developed for each waterbody will be used to guide the development and implementation of priority projects, including new monitoring and treatment technologies. The action plans will be complete by the end of May and the lessons learned through these action plans will be applied to other impacted waterbodies.
