Twenty sets of eyes were trained to identify aquatic invasive species Wednesday at a League to Save Lake Tahoe training exercise at the Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association Pavilion. Staff members Aaron Hussmann and Savannah Rudroff provided information, resources and hands-on training to volunteers in the Eyes on the Lake program. Lake Tahoe currently has two invasive plant species in its ecosystem: the Eurasian milfoil plant and the curlyleaf pondweed. Hussmann told volunteers that the Eyes on the Lake program allowed the League to keep a better record of possible aquatic invasive plants and curb their spread. “The whole idea is early detection with a lot more achievable goals and be more-cost effective,” Hussmann said.
