Volunteer Lake Protectors Needed

last update: April 24, 2018


Watercraft Stewards
Work alongside our paid Watercraft Stewards for as few or as many two-hour shifts as you’d like on Friday-Monday at the boat launch of your choice (Penn Yan Village, Keuka Lake State Park, Urbana).

Stream Team
Help monitor the water quality of the streams that empty into Keuka Lake in order to help us gain a better understanding of the water quality of the Lake. There are two different options for this program:
1) Do you have a stream running through your property, or is your lake house adjacent to the mouth of a stream? You can help monitor the stream’s water quality! Conduct visual inspections of the stream’s water quality throughout the summer and record your observations on a form provided by the KLA.
2) Help collect water samples for laboratory analysis from designated locations in streams in the Keuka Lake watershed.

Shoreline Monitoring
Monitor your lakefront property shoreline or public shoreline on a regular basis to watch for signs of harmful algal blooms.

Aquatic Invasive Species Monitoring
We need eyes on the Lake! Help monitor aquatic invasive species in Keuka Lake and the Outlet, and help us watch out for any new infestations. Monitoring can occur from the shore or by boat. Equipment provided.
