Released as part of a two-volume set that includes The State of the Lake: Chief Concerns as Revealed by Science, this new publication focuses on the fundamental threats now facing Lake George—invasive species, rising salt levels, and declining water quality and clarity. Applying latest science, the publication calls for “an unprecedented commitment to reversing present trends and preventing Lake George from slipping into a state of irreversible decline.”
This volume is illustrated with a series of infographics that takes on each of the primary problems threatening lake health. Specific measures feature partnerships, innovation, and investment as the three pillars for lasting success (view our list of 2015 investment priorities). These measures form the core of The FUND’s Legacy Strategy.
