We are pleased to announce that the LSCCF has been awarded $ 9946 AIS funds from the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) this year. This award is for the support of aquatic invasive species removal. It was reconsidered and subsequently awarded after the initial notice that LSCCF was not going to receive any funds this year.
In 2018, the LSCCF was granted $11,397 towards our harvesting program costs, and in 2019, the grant awarded was $9,718. This supplemental source of funding certainly needed for this 2020-2021 season, as in real terms, this funded a month of harvesting expense.
