DEC to “Blitz” Aquatic Invasive Species Through July 10th


The New York Department of Environmental Conservation has announced they’ve teamed up with seven Great Lake states, six states in the Northeast, and 6 Canadian provinces.

The campaign launched will work towards informing boaters and the general public on the risks of introducing and spreading aquatic invasive species.

Now through July 10 the DEC and other organizations throughout the states and provinces will work together to educate the public at hundreds of water access sites throughout the Great Lakes and Northeast.

“New York State is focused on preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species and partnerships like the annual AIS Landing Blitz are an essential part of our comprehensive efforts to engage New Yorkers and our visitors on the steps they can take to protect our world class waterways,” said DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos.
