Rep. Elise Stefanik (right) is shown how invasive species can get into different places of a boat.

Rep. Elise Stefanik met this week with officials from the Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board, the Fund for Lake George, the Adirondack Park Agency and other community leaders to discuss the threat that invasive species pose, and what steps are being done to mitigate their spread. She visited a boat washing station to get a first hand look at their operation to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Boat washing is a critical process to prevent inadvertent transport of aquatic invasive species such as watermilfoil, zebra mussels, and water fleas from waterbody to waterbody.
