The Lake Tahoe Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinating Committee hosts a free public forum Thursday, with presentations about its programs, invasive species of concern, funding challenges and volunteer opportunities.

One presentation focuses on the Tahoe Keys Integrated Weed Management Plan.

The forum is at the Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences at Sierra Nevada College, 291 Country Club Drive, in Incline Village. Doors open at 5 p.m. and presentations start at 5:30 p.m.

The invasive species coordinating committee is made up of 40 public and private partner organizations including federal, state and local jurisdictions, research partners, public utility districts and private marinas.

"We encourage members of the public to attend the upcoming forum and learn more about the great work being performed by the Aquatic Invasive Species Program and how they can help," said Nicole Cartwright, aquatic invasive species coordinator for the Tahoe Resource Conservation District.
