Hydrilla Hunters 


Lakefront Hydrilla Hunters Needed Around Cayuga Lake: 

Chemical treatments in 2011-2017 have shown to be a success. No hydrilla found in the Cayuga Inlet since 2015 and no hydrilla found in Fall Creek since 2016. The Hydrilla Task Force continues to develop and modify the management plan in order to combat the invasive plant.

The professional monitoring teams need the assistance of Hydrilla Hunters patrolling and reporting on lakefront properties and checking your boats and docks! YOU. Contact steward@cayugalake.org  to learn how to identify hydrilla, and get ready for the summer 2018 “hydrilla season.”


NEW – IMPROVED! Hydrilla I.D. Sheets Available: We are mailing (free) Hydrilla I.D. sheets, which include other lake plant look-a-likes for comparison, printed in high-quality color on clear plastic sheets. Please contact Hilary at steward@cayugalake.org   to obtain one or more copies for your use in watching for hydrilla along the lake and in the creeks. Thanks to the West Shore Homeowners Association for funding these detection tools and to Josh Teeter, NY State Parks, for conception and design!


Who We Are, Where to Get Information & Report Possible Hydrilla Infestations: 

The Hydrilla Hunters is an informal, trained group of Cayuga Lake watershed residents working together to prevent takeover of our lake and creeks by the aquatic invasive plant, Hydrilla verticillata. We are affiliated with the Hydrilla Task Force of the Cayuga Lake Watershed. This newsletter provides information about hydrilla and its eradication on Cayuga Lake.   Information & report forms:  www.StopHydrilla.org. On Facebook at Stophydrilla.org ; Twitter: @Stophydrilla.
