Lake Steward Program
The Lake Hopatcong Foundation is launching a program based on the Lake George Lake Steward program, to help prevent the spread of invasive species to Lake Hopatcong. Students at Seton Hall University helped craft the program as part of a partnership between the LHF and the school’s Greenius environmental studies program.
Be a part of the Lake Hopatcong Foundation’s Lake Steward program’s second year, spending shifts at Lee’s County Park on Lake Hopatcong, educating boaters about invasive species and how to prevent their spread, as well as distributing materials about invasive species and clean boating. Lake Stewards will work outdoors in most weather conditions, though shifts will be canceled in the case of severe weather conditions.
