Invading Species Watch
The Invading Species Watch program is a volunteer based monitoring program for aquatic invading species. It is an initiative of the Invading Species Awareness Program, which is a partnership between the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
The WLPP has been monitoring and sampling White Lake for invasive species since 2014. Since that time, White Lake has been infested with zebra mussels and the presence of spiny waterflea confirmed.
Currently, several beds of invasive phragmites have been identified on the shores of White Lake. This species is expected to spread more generally in coming years.
