Harmful Algal Blooms AWARENESS

The presentation at our annual Chili Dinner via ZOOM, was by Casey Holzworth. Casey is the Regional Natural Resource Steward for the Saratoga-Capital District and Thousand Islands region for NYS Parks. Casey’s presentation was on Harmful Algal Blooms – better known as HABs.

You may have read recently they were also found in the Queen of America’s lakes – Lake George. This is troubling for our region.

Casey’s presentation was highly informative and timely. Please take a look to understand the identification, causes and what you can do to help – either in reporting the blooms or reporting violations.

DOWNLOAD the presentation.

GENERAL INFORMATION: It’s just not the lakes and ponds within the boundaries of state parks – HABS have been found in the High Peaks Region as well and the Champlain Lock System. Be vigilant as you hike in areas of the wilderness. Bring double the amount of water you think you need, especially for your canines. Click here for information of HABs reported throughout the state.


ATTENTION Dog Owners: Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) are toxic to dogs.  Do Not let your dogs or other domestic animals in the water.
