Aquatic invasive species (AIS)

Current research projects

 

Training

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.
