Aquatic invasive species (AIS)

Current research projects


The AIS Detectors program trains individuals to make credible aquatic invasive species reports to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Starry Trek is a statewide search for starry stonewort and other aquatic invasive species that happens every August. Participants arrive at a local training site near them to receive their training, equipment and lake monitoring route and then spend the morning searching local lakes.
