SLPID Stewardship on Saratoga Lake

What we do

SLPID Saratoga Lake Stewardship Program

Stewardship on Saratoga lake has become an important part of invasive species control. The stewards inspect every boat for invasive species everyday between Memorial day and labor Day from 7a.m. to 4 p.m. As well as inspecting every boat the stewards take recreational use data such as the number of people and boats, the horse power of boats, what type of motors they have, what type of boats they are, where they have been in the last two weeks, what time they launched, and if they had any prior knowledge of invasive species. Keeping  this data allows SLIPD to answer important questions such how many boats and people come during the week compared to how many people come during the weekend, how many invasive species the stewards have stopped from entering the Saratoga Lake, what different lakes people traveled to before entering Saratoga Lake, and how many people took steps to stop invasive species.
