About the event
Join us for an on-water citizen science survey on Wednesday, June 28th from 1:00-4:30pm!
We’ll start out with covering the basics of Chautauqua Lake’s known and new invasive species, how to document sightings of them, and how to report them using iMapInvasives. We’ll then search for aquatic invasive species (AIS) in Ashville Bay and, if any are found, record their location and carefully remove them. We’ll meet at and launch from Ashville Bay Marina.
Participation is free but limited to 10 paddlers. If you are interested in joining us, please RSVP to our Seasonal AIS Coordinator Sandra Emke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Participants will need to bring his/her own kayak or canoe and personal protective equipment (life jackets).
- The date/time is weather permitting. Any changes will be noted on our website and social media.
