Invasive Species

Fund for Lake George

The Lake George Park Commission will hold a special meeting next week to discuss a plan to prevent aquatic invasive species from entering the lake.

The meeting on Tuesday follows a summer and fall assessing alternatives for keeping new invasive species out of Lake George. The Lake George Park Commission worked with communities surrounding the basin. It resulted in a recommendation from their consultant that a mandatory boat inspection program be imposed.  Commission Executive Director Dave Wick says the upcoming meeting will examine how such a mandatory program would work.
