SLELO Special Project Webinar Series: Featuring our Aquatic Restoration Initiative

March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Wednesday, March 16th, 2022

1 pm-2 pm EST -Via Zoom



With AIS and climate change impacting the future of the Great Lakes, there is an opportunity to enhance a more diverse and resilient native ecosystem in the Eastern Lake Ontario region. Today, there are strict laws in place for ballast water dumping, transporting invasive species knowingly and extensive efforts underway to educate recreational boaters on preventing the spread of AIS to un-infested waters through the NYS Watercraft Inspection Steward Program, which teaches boaters to “Clean, Drain, Dry” their equipment. These efforts are important but without innovative and restorative plans being implemented, unintended negative anthropogenic impacts will continue to destabilize this system.

As a result, SLELO PRISM initiated the new Aquatic Restoration Initiative (ARI) beginning in 2020 which will continue through 2023. This webinar will provide an overview of this initiative and the results of completed restoration projects.

Presented by:

Brittney Rogers-SLELO PRISM Aquatic Restoration & Resiliency Coordinator
