Milfoil Scout Program

ESSLA’s Scout Program is a volunteer effort consisting of members and lake/river shore owners providing surveillance of the entire Schroon Lake/River shorelines for the presence or absence of Eurasian Water Milfoil. Where milfoil is sighted, a marker is dropped to alert professional hand harvesters for collection. The tremendous success of this program has resulted in Schroon Lake/River being scaled down to “maintenance” mode. However, continued vigilance is required due to the rapid reproductive and growth qualities of this invasive.
