Backcountry Water Monitoring Training with the ADK Mountain Club

PLEASE NOTE: This event is being organized by the Adirondack Mountain Club and all RSVP, contact info, and safety requirements can be found on their website.

This course requires a computer or tablet with internet access. A private zoom link will be sent to your email address a few days prior to the event.

Join ADK, the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP), and the New York Natural Heritage Program at the Heart Lake Program Center to learn how you can help detect aquatic invasive species in the Adirondacks. The training will cover invasive species identification and the use of the Backcountry Water Monitoring Protocols.

Please plan on signing into Zoom at 9:20am to allow time to test your connection. This half day course will begin at 9:30 am and conclude at 12:30 pm with a few short breaks throughout. Our instructors will explain how to identify aquatic invasive species and share the pond survey technique. The training will also cover the use of the iNaturalist app to identify aquatic species and the use of the NY iMapInvasives app to report pond survey results.
