Asian clams were found in Lake George last August. The Lake George Asian Clam Rapid Response Task Force was quickly formed by a number of local, regional, and state agencies and organizations. The Task Force’s main goal is to coordinate efforts to eradicate this new invader from Lake George before it has a chance to establish a permanent population.
The Lake George Asian Clam Rapid Response Task Force (LGACRRTF) has created a new web site to educate and keep people informed about the Asian clam response in Lake George. The LGACRRTF has organized an eradication plan for the Asian clam planned for April - July of 2011.
