Long Lake stewards on duty

The lake steward program is provided this year through the combined efforts of the Long Lake Association and the town of Long Lake. The 2008 program, coordinated by Adirondack Watershed Institute at Paul Smith's College, proved that the discovery and elimination of the invasive plants is imperative to the health of Long Lake.

Once invasive species like Eurasian water milfoil permeate the lake, they continue to spread and the cost of the removal process can be exorbitant. The stewards will be on duty seven days a week through Labor Day weekend, and a full report of their findings will be available in the fall of 2009.
