APIPP's Annual Aquatic Invasive Plant Training Program

Help spread the word! Get on-board with the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program's 13th annual aquatic invasive plant training program! Learn aquatic plant identification tips and survey techniques for both native and aquatic invasive plants. Of particular importance this year is learning how to identify hydrilla, an aggressive invasive plant in 15 waterways in New York. Luckily, it has not been detected in Adirondack waters...yet.

The training is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP by June 13th to Hilary Smith at hsmith@tnc.org or 518-576-2082 and provide your name, contact info, preferred training location and the name of the lake you are interested in surveying.

Sessions are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Volunteers are asked to conduct an annual survey on an Adirondack lake or pond of their choice. To-date, more than 680 aquatic enthusiasts surveyed 311 Adirondack waterways. From the Fulton Chain to Lake Champlain - volunteer efforts are making a difference! Early detections of new invasive plant infestations provide the best chance for successful eradication.

Are you a returning volunteer? Feel free to join us for a half day or full day refresher course. Or pass this along and invite someone new!
