Invasive Species Volunteers Needed!

HELP WANTED! 

Have you noticed a change in aquatic plant coverage near the shoreline of the lake?  Is your swimming hole or dock inundated with unfamiliar "weeds"?

PRISM, or the Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management of the Finger Lakes is looking for volunteers for this summers monitoring program.  Over the past few years, Pure Waters' volunteers have worked with PRISM to monitor the lake for aquatic invasive threats.  But with many encroaching threats to Seneca Lake, we need more coverage and that means more volunteers!

Volunteering with this program is simple, and you'll learn about the "weeds" that have become a problem in the lake.  Volunteers monitor every two weeks during the months of June to October.  This can be right from your dock!  No experience necessary! 

Please consider volunteering with this very important effort.  In order to find solutions for the invasive species that threaten Seneca Lake, we first need to understand them!  It all starts with monitoring!
