Become A VIP - Vermont Invasive Patroller - For LSC

4 May 2022 8:00 AM | Jerremy Jones (Administrator)

Hello LSC - we have a great event to tell you about.

If you enjoy paddling on Lake St. Catherine and would also like to be part of an early warning system looking for invasive species, we hope you will join us!

Vermont Invasive Patroller Paddle Survey Training: Tuesday, August 9th from 10 AM - 1 PM.

Vermont Invasive Patrollers

Please join us and Vermont Lakes & Ponds Program staff at this free paddle session offered to train Vermont Invasive Patrollers (VIPS) to monitor lakes and ponds for invasive species, survey healthy native plant populations, and reduce the threat for invasive plant species introductions. 

You can read more about the VIP program here.

Early detection is vital to protecting Lake St. Catherine from harmful invasive plants and animals. Vermont Invasive Patrollers (VIPs) monitor water bodies for new introductions of invasive species and report their findings to the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).

If attending this paddle session, you must provide your own watercraft and other on-the-water equipment.

Registration is now open!

This is a GREAT addition to our invasive species control and prevention initiatives which includes our Greeter Program. Our Greeters work at the Wells boat launch and at the State Park to inspect vessels before (and after) they enter Lake St. Catherine to check for aquatic invasive species (AIS) like spiny water flea, asian clams, zebra mussels, and other invasive plants and animals that are only a lake away from LSC. They will be on duty beginning on Memorial Day weekend.

We hope you'll join us on the paddle!
