New York Invasive Species Awareness Week
Celebrated annually the second week of July, the event promotes knowledge and understanding of invasive species to help stop their spread by engaging citizens in a wide range of activities across the state and encouraging them to take action.
Various events about invasive species take place during the week throughout the Adirondack Park. Events change each year.
For a complete list of events happening throughout New York including the Adirondack Park, visit the New York State Invasive Species Awareness Week page here.
The Lake George Association coordinates the events, and the participating presenters, for the Lake George region. Lake George area events have included aquatic plant identification, benthic barrier installation, guided canoe and kayak tours, interpretive walks, forest pest training, and family activities. Every year displays outside the Visitor Center in Lake George Village provide information about invasive species to the public.
