The Lake Host™ Program is a courtesy boat inspection program administered by NH LAKES in cooperation with local participating groups to prevent the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species, plants and animals, from waterbody to waterbody.Infestations of invasive species such as variable milfoil and Asian Clams in our waterbodies are undesirable because: they make recreation in and on the water dangerous and unpleasant; they disrupt the ecological balance of waterbodies; they reduce shoreline property values; and they are difficult and expensive to control.
CALLING ALL NH LAKE & POND GROUPS! Is there a boat launch on your lake? If yes, it’s time to plan your 2017 Lake Host Program to help boaters prevent the spread of invasive plants & animals. Applications for grants to pay Lake Hosts inspectors are being accepted until March 20. Find out more: www.nhlakes.org/lake-host.
