Stop the Spread of Aquatic Invasive Species

Share article

GREENSBORO – The Caspian Lake Greeter Program has been instrumental in preventing the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species for over 30 years. Caspian Lake is still free of all known invasive species such as Eurasian Milfoil and Zebra Mussels.

Our precious lake’s high due to education and care by greeters and our boating community

Starting on the Memorial holiday weekend, our greeters returned to inspect boats prior to entering the lake by surveying the boat owners as to when and where the boat was last used. Based on the survey answers, all boats and trailers are subject to inspection. Be sure to have all bilges empty and drains open prior to transport and arrival.

Help Wanted: We need an additional hired greeter to work a paid part-time schedule of 20 to 25 hours each week from now through Labor Day weekend. This person will be trained to greet our boaters in a friendly manner, perform surveys and inspections, educate boaters on the threat of invasive spread, and answer local questions specific to our lake. Qualifications are a pleasant demeanor, attention to detail, and good work ethic.

We can use a few additional volunteers to cover the paid greeters on an occasional time off need. Volunteers can learn more about the Aquatic Invasive concerns, Caspian’s overall water quality health, and perform some lake surveys by boat.
