Eyes on the Lake hosts second round of training

The League to Save Lake Tahoe will host a second round of training for volunteers interested in helping spot and report aquatic invasive species at Lake Tahoe.

Eyes on the Lake trainings will take place the evenings of July 29 in Incline Village and July 30 in South Lake Tahoe. Exact time and place will be given to people who register for the training.

“Volunteers will learn how to identify aquatic invasive plants that are threatening Tahoe’s ecosystem and shoreline clarity, in order to help agencies stamp out new infestations before they grow larger and more expensive to control,” according to a statement from the environmental group.

Eyes on the Lake started in June as a partnership between the League, the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and the Tahoe Resource Conservation District.

Volunteers are encouraged to register at the League’s website, http://www.keeptahoeblue.org.

Seventeen kayakers, swimmers and boaters attended the first trainings and are now on the lookout for new invasive infestations around Lake Tahoe. The League hopes to double or triple the number of volunteers in the program by summer’s end, according to the statement.
