Please Express Your Support for Fighting Invasive Species

Rhode Island Lakes are in trouble, threatened by non-native Aquatic Invasive Species. First documented in 2012 by a DEM State survey, invasive plants grow quickly, spread easily from lake to lake, are harmful to natural plant species, expensive to treat, and can overtake and destroy our lakes & ponds. Save the Lakes is seeking your signature now to urge RI’s elected officials to take action: to pass legislation and provide funding to help combat Aquatic Invasive Species.

Please fill out this Save The Lakes Endorsement Survey in Support of State Funding to Combat Aquatic Invasive Species. The results of this survey will be forwarded to our state legislators. There is no additional obligation.

Save The Lakes is aggressively working to build statewide awareness as our lakes continue to be threatened with aquatic invasive species. Freshwater needs our help! The goal is to acquire State financial support for all lakes and a person dedicated to freshwater issues. To do this, STL is collecting signatures from across Rhode Island. Our goal, with your help, is to achieve a thousand or more signatures. Please act now to get this done, encouraging others to do the same.
