Glover’s Shadow Lake Association says Eurasian Milfoil has been eradicated from its lake in Glover. The aquatic invasive species was initially spotted in 2011 by a boat wash greeter, who informed state authorities. Following a swift survey of the lake, an early infestation of Eurasian watermilfoil was confirmed. A legion of volunteers embarked on an intensive eradication campaign that has paid off, and by 2018 the invasive species was believed to be completely eradicated. However, in accordance with state policy, a further five years of observation was required to confirm the lake’s new milfoil-free status. In 2022, Shadow Lake was officially removed from the infested waters list. The achievement was commemorated on July 15 with a lake-side celebration. The SLA took this opportunity to express gratitude to the many individuals, DEC personnel, and the town of Glover, whose unwavering support played a pivotal role in this conservation success story. Special recognition was given to Shadow Lake resident Christine Cano for her instrumental role in the eradication effort.
