Help manage aquatic plants
Show us what you know!
Since early 2009 the Finger Lakes Institute and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County has worked collaboratively to manage invasive European frogbit and other aquatic plants through research and educational outreach. The project, funded by the New York Great Lakes Protection Fund Large Grants Program, has included field and laboratory experiments on different control methods, such as hand pulling, surface covers, biological controls, and public education and awareness building programs on European frogbit and other invasive aquatic plant species.
Help us gauge your knowledge and understanding of aquatic invasive plants! Complete the public survey! If your name and contact information is provided on your completed survey, you will be entered to win a prize ($30 value)!! Your feedback will be used to develop educational programs, identify environmental issues of the Finger Lakes, and target future research projects.
