Friday’s conservation plan science survey | News, Sports, Work

BEMUS POINT — The next session of the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy’s Citizen Science Survey for invasive aquatic plants at Lake Chautauqua is Friday at 1pm. The survey will cover sections of Bemus Point and Long Point, with participants starting at Bemus Point.

This session is part of a series of public information sessions and water surveys conducted by the CWC (with funding from the Chautauqua Lake & Watershed Management Alliance) throughout the summer. Participants will learn how to distinguish beneficial native aquatic plant species from problematic invasive species (“weed”) and also learn what they can do as individuals and as communities to prevent the arrival and spread of new aquatic invasive species. Those interested can also participate in water surveys to find and remove invasive plants.

Attendance is free, but pre-registration is required for the on-water program as attendance is limited to 10 participants per session. Registration can be done by calling 716-664-2166 or email [email protected] Anyone participating in a training session on the water must bring their own kayak or canoe and life jacket.
