Statewide Hydrilla Hunt Webinar

LGA office

 

Join us for a group viewing of the statewide hydrilla hunt webinar. The webinar will instruct participants where to look for hydrilla, summarize sampling techniques to gather suspect plants and show how to report search areas and findings. Volunteers will be asked to search for hydrilla over the weekend and during the following week. Report possible hydrilla sightings as well as locations that were searched but no hydrilla was found will help us understand the statewide distribution of hydrilla.

We will also have examples of other invasive species that you may encounter in Lake George while hunting for hydrilla.

Registration required. Please e-mail Education Coordinator Kristen Rohne if you will be attending.
