Researchers at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) are conducting research on some of the kettle lakes (Song Lake, Crooked Lake, Tully Lake, Little York Lake, and Gatehouse Pond) located in central New York.  Specifically, the study is investigating the impacts of boat traffic and development on the success of non-native species establishment.  The kettle lakes associated with the Cortland-Onondaga Federation of Kettle Lakes Association (and Gatehouse Pond) are an ideal system to examine these processes due to a gradient in boating access (public vs. private) and a range in the number of households surrounding each lake.
