VT Fish & Wildlife Department Enlists Public to Prevent Spread of Invasive Species (May 2017)
Vermont Agency of Natural Resources. Fish & Wildlife Department.
A new resource gives Vermonters information about how to easily identify invasive species and provides recommendations for removing them or preventing their spread. The LIEP program, short for Locate, Identify, Evaluate and treat, and Prevent, is an online tool landowners, boaters, anglers, and concerned citizens can use to prevent the spread of invasive species. Vermonters can find information about the LIEP program and resources for preventing the spread of invasive species at the Fish and Wildlife Department's website.

Early detection is vital to protecting Vermont's water bodies from harmful invasive plants and animals. With more than 800 lakes and ponds throughout the state, volunteers play a key role in our surveying efforts. Vermont Invasive Patrollers (VIPs) monitor water bodies for new introductions of invasive species and report their findings to the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
