Aquatic Invasive Species survey

July 11 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Aquatic Invasive Species survey will take place on Sunday, July 11, 2021 from 11am to 3pm
Meet at the ACA Pavilion at 11 am for a comprehensive training with Lindsay Yoder, aquatic species coordinator for the Lower Hudson PRISM (Prevent Regional Invasive Species Management).

The program will begin with Lindsay giving an overview of AIS in Lake Sebago and how we can survey the lake to conduct ongoing assessments. Participants will then proceed to Dock 10 and use MCKC’s tandem canoes to survey the cove—and possibly other areas of the lake—for AIS. Participants must have basic paddling skills and wear a PFD at all times on the dock and on the water.

If you are interested in participating in this very important activity or would like more information about this or other conservation activities at Nawakwa, please contact me by email: Irastahl@yahoo.com or call or text me at 516-547 2780.

Note: It is important that we have volunteers from Nawakwa. The current plan is to survey the cove near ACA and, based on the number of volunteers, other parts of the lake. If we have enough volunteers, we should be able to survey more of the lake, including around our lake front and boat launch areas. We possibly could continue this work on our own through the summer and fall.
