Checking Backcountry Ponds

Posted on Tuesday, July 16th, 2019 | Posted in News

Volunteers are inspecting backcountry water bodies in the Adirondacks for aquatic invasive species. A new video highlights their work.

The four-minute video, produced by the Lake Champlain Basin Program and released in May, shows the work of volunteers trained by the Adirondack Mountain Club in 2018.

Since 2015, the Basin Program has awarded and administered a series of grants to fund the development of the aquatic invasive species lake survey, lake survey prioritization, training of volunteers, and monitoring.

The video features views of volunteers in action, and their own words and those of club staff members describing the problem of invasives and different aspects of the monitoring program.

In part of the video, a team of volunteers uses maps to find the best route to an off-trail pond.

The video is a recent addition to the program’s Diving In series.
