New Hampshire is home to nearly 1,000 lakes and ponds. While our state boasts some of the cleanest and healthiest lakes in the country, they face many threats. Tune in to this weekly, four part series and hear how biologists, nonprofit organizations, and volunteers are working together to monitor our lakes and keep them clean and healthy—and learn how you can help!
Topics will include cyanobacteria, invasive species, water quality trends, and loons.
These webinars are hosted by NH LAKES and are FREE, but pre-registration is required and space is limited.
Preventing the Spread of Invasive Species in New Hampshire’s Lakes
Wednesday, July 15, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
The good news is that the spread of invasive plants—like milfoil—from lake to lake in New Hampshire has slowed over the years. But, the bad news is, the spread of invasive animals—like the Asian clam and the Chinese mystery snail—in our lakes is on the rise. Tune in to this session to find out why invasive species are a problem and what is being done to prevent their spread—and how you can help!
