The EPA has announced a series of grants under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to target invasive species. Among those receiving money is a small college in the midst of the Adirondacks.
Five organizations in New York State will receive a total of 1-point-4 million dollars to assess and reduce the spread of invasive species. Paul Smith’s College’s Watershed Stewardship Program will receive just under 400-thousand dollars to continue a watercraft inspection program at boat launches in the western Adirondacks.
