A Plan to Stop Invasive Species in Lake George

Summertime is right around the corner and for many New Yorkers that means a trip to Lake George.  A popular vacation spot for decades, in recent years a number of invasive species have appeared in the Queen of American Lakes.   Five of them, specifically have been identified by The Fund for Lake George including Asian Clams, Spiny Water Flea, Zebra Mussels, Curly-Leaf Pondweed, and Eurasian Milfoil. 

Last month a pilot program began that requires all boats entering the lake to be inspected both before and after they enter the water.
