Invasive Species Training Coming to Peck’s Lake

Peck’s Lake – We are very pleased to announce that Peck’s Lake has been chosen as the site of the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP)  Lake Protectors Training!

Those attending training will learn how to identify and report aquatic invasive species.

If you’re interested in the training, you can now register on the AIPIPP website. We are told they will limit the training to approximately 20-25 participants. This training is for those from all Adirondack Lakes, not just Peck’s Lake, so  if you’re interested, sign up now!

You can register at the AIPIPP website by clicking this link.

This is not a PLPA event, and questions about the training should be directed to the APIPP. 

Thanks to the PLPA Invasive Species Committee and to Chair Donna Coffey for working with the AIPIPP to bring this important training to Peck’s Lake. Details are below from the APIPP Website.

Join us on Saturday July 13 at Pecks Lake to learn the key identification of our 6 aquatic invasive species of interest. This hands on training will allow you to see live and preserved speciemens of the invasive species so you feel confident how to identify them. We will then review how to complete a report using online or paper materials. We will also cover submitting reports to, our statewide database.  Please follow the link to RSVP to the event.

Here is our general agenda:

9:00-10:15 – Review species identification

10:30-11:30 – Reporting using iMap and forms

11:30-12:00 – Optional paddle to put your skills into practice. Bring your own boat and life vest if interested in joining.
