Cayuga Lake & Hydrilla: Public Information Meeting

  • Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

The 2018 annual hydrilla season-end public information meeting & volunteer thank-you event.

Get the latest from the experts on where hydrilla has been found around Cayuga Lake, where it is under control, and where it may be gaining ground. According to the Finger Lakes PRISM (Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management), “Hydrilla is the world’s most successful aquatic invasive plant. It rapidly spreads and causes severe impact to water quality, native plant and fish communities, recreation, irrigation, and water treatment facilities.” We need to work together lake wide, across municipalities and counties, to prevent its further spread.

Refreshments served! See map below and see Wells Collage map at  https://www.wells.edu/files/public/wells-college-map-102417.pdf. Zabriskie Hall is #6 on this map.  Park on the circular drive or in Woods Lot #3.
