Managing Aqua Invasive Species

Over the past three years, the Conservation Committee has partnered with Hudson River Sloop Clearwater to manage Aqua Invasive Species (AIS) in Lake Sebago. AIS grow so rapidly that they overtake the native plants and animals, wrecking havoc on the ecosystem and, in some cases, impeding recreational activities such as paddling and swimming. 

Aqua Invasives, such as hydrilla, have infested and clogged the Croton River, and other invasives have ravaged parts of Lake George in upstate New York, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to control.
