INCLINE VILLAGE (AP) - The threat aquatic non-native species pose to Lake Tahoe will be the focus of a conference Thursday in Incline Village. The workshop is designed to help government officials and researchers come up with management plans to combat the spread of invasive species such as Eurasian water milfoil. The tall, dark plant helps fuel algae growth, which threatens to turn Lake Tahoe's famous clear, blue waters green. The conference will take place at the Tahoe Environmental Research Center.
