Survey Team in the South Inlet
If you’ve seen a small motorboat weaving through the South Inlet, you have spotted CLF’s survey team! For the past five years, Bill Widrig, Kathy Welch and others have conducted the Lake Management Tracker Survey (LMT) of South Inlet to monitor and record data on both native plant species and Eurasian Watermilfoil. Over two hundred GPS waypoints are visited, raked with a special aquatic rake and the findings recorded in a survey app called Survey123. This information is shared with the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program and helps to inform CLF’s harvesting plans for the following summer.
