Adirondack Foundation uses $170,000 grant to fight aquatic invasive species
The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program has received a private foundation grant of $170,000 for invasive species prevention and control. One of the primary uses of the funds will be to pilot a “terrestrial regional response team” a four-person seasonal crew that will manage invasive plants in priority areas.

At least 80 waters in the Adirondack Park have one or more aquatic invasive species, but more than 220 waters surveyed by APIPP volunteers remain free of invasives. A recent wave of local aquatic species transport laws has given attention to the proactive cause of prevention.

Traverse City will be First in the World to Sort Fish for Upriver Passage - Dams hurt native fish by blocking their access to rivers — but removing dams to let the fish through would open the way for invasive species. A first-of-its-kind barrier designed to deal with this problem by sorting fish will be tested on the Boardman River in downtown Traverse City. If it’s successful, it could be a model for rivers all over the world.
