Welcome to the AIS Patrol Blog!

Updated: Apr 11, 2023

The Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Patrol is a dedicated group of volunteers who patrol Conway Lake in kayaks, canoes and on paddle boards looking for the potential introduction of invasive plants and/or animals. The Blog is where we post patrol reports and where you can find detailed descriptions of native and invasive species, and a number of valuable reference guides. Below is a brief description of what you can find in the Blog folders:

Patrols – This is where we post the results of our patrols and photos of any plant or animal you find of interest or have questions about.

Plants – Includes descriptions and photos of native NH aquatic plants, many of which have been identified in Conway Lake.

Animals – Includes descriptions and photos of native NH aquatic animals found in Conway Lake.

Invasives – Includes descriptions and photos to help identify invasive aquatic plants and animals that COULD find their way to our lake.

Library - Includes the minutes from previous Kickoff and Roundup meetings.

How To - Quick guides and instructions for a variety of topics.

You can find more useful tools on our website under the Resource tab. These include maps of each of the patrol zones, guidebooks on aquatic plants, and webinars covering a variety of topics. Check it out.

If you have a question, would like more information on the AIS Patrol program, or would like to report something you’ve seen, please drop a note to:

Hot day

Patrolled part of Zone 7 with Tim. Tried to track our journey with Avenza but my phone overheated and shut down. A contingency I never expected. We probably covered 181-200 and 173-188 before the wind

The blog looks like a terrific resource! Lindsay and I are pleased to join the patrol - had a great first training on the water this week with Maria.
