Help stop lake weed

Eurasian milfoil, a spiny seaweed not native to North America, has been a problem locally, and the biggest weapon in combating the invasive plant is education, said Jack DeWeese, coordinator of the town of Caroga’s invasive aquatic weed extraction in Caroga Lake. The Adirondack Landowners Association is working with the state Department of Environmental Conservation and local counties throughout upstate New York to raise awareness about aquatic invasive species this year. The three-part program educates people by sending brochures with renewals for boat and trailer registrations, providing space in local Department of Motor Vehicle offices for signs and brochures to get the word out about the problem, and involving the private sector. The ALA will work with North Country business owners and town government officials to offer posters and handouts with information on how to prevent the spread of invasive species throughout the Adirondacks.

FWP ups state defenses against aquatic invasive species

In spite of the occasional discovery at a check station, zebra mussels haven’t moved into Montana yet. “The five northwestern states are free of mussels and that’s currently the line,” Begley said. The same can’t be said for Eurasian watermilfoil, which first invaded Montana in 2006. After lurking in Idaho’s Lake Pend Oreille, where it’s been degrading the water quality for a decade, it finally showed up in the Clark Fork River.
