Candlewood Lake Authority Awarded DEEP Invasive Species Grant To Support New Lake Steward Program
The Candlewood Lake Authority is very excited to announce our new Lake Steward Program offering voluntary invasive species boat inspections to boaters launching on Candlewood Lake. CLA Lake Stewards will be posted at some of the public launches around Candlewood Lake on peak boating days during the summer of 2021, offering invasive species education, a few informative keepsakes, and inspections to help demonstrate to users how to look for invasive species on their own! We want to thank the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental whose new grant program for invasive species control is making this new program possible. If you’re launching your boat on Candlewood Lake this summer, keep your eyes peeled for new smiling faces at the launch offering critical invasive species information!
