on Lake George, NY Bringing a Boat to Lake George, NY? We Love Lake George, New York!
And we don't necessarily mean our favorite recreational kayak or canoe! Good old Lake George, NY, a favorite travel-tourism destination for nearly forever, certainly 'popular' since the as far back as the1800's, like any other crystal-clear Adirondack
body of water has experience growing pains! While our favorite 'family-atmosphere' lake, Lake George, New York, USA, located only 200 miles from New York City, and 170 miles from Montreal Canada, is close by, so are other bodies of water where visitors to Lake George berth their boats and enjoy the joys of power boating, sailing, jet skiing, fishing and other watercraft-based recreation.
Recently, lovers of Lake George, NY, individuals, government agencies, and water-keepers have begun the proactive campaign to bring to public awareness our responsibility to self-inspect and check incoming boats and watercraft to Lake George, as a body of water and ecological-system, for "Aquatic Hitchhikers." What's an "Aquatic Hitchhiker?" Just about anything that's not indigenous and native to Lake George, NY. "Aquatic Hitchhikers," such as foreign marine plants and small "Asian Clams," and other species, "stow away" in propellers, boat trailers, bilges, and just about any tiny place, whether obvious or not, until they're inadvertently introduced, released, settled and domiciled in the waters of Lake George, NY.
What are we getting at here? Simply put, if you're bringing a boat or watercraft to Lake George, NY, please inspect it prior to its launch in order to ensure no "Aquatic Hitchhikers" find their way to Lake George, NY. Lake George hotels, motels and cabin complexes with docking and berthing facilities post general guidelines to comply, and offer boat washing stations and points of informal inspection, to help ensure "Aquatic Hitchhikers" don't find their way into the lake.
Local government agencies, such as the Lake George Park Commission, and Lake George Association, provide these guideline and tutorial posters in their effort to help. They routinely inspect, and monitor the water quality of Lake George, and when discovered, remove and remedy aquatic hitchhikers and invasive aquatic species inadvertently introduced through recreational boating.
