Wilmington, Vermont kicked off its new greeter program at Lake Raponda last weekend. The program is intended to aid in warding off invasive species, which, if introduced into Lake Raponda’s waters, could threaten the recreational mainstay. Throughout the summer, the program will station trained greeters at the lake to educate boaters about the threats such organisms pose and how their introduction into the water can be prevented.
