Aquatic Invasive Species Training For Volunteers

31 May 2016 2:58 PM | Anonymous

I am sharing an opportunity to help prevent the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) in Minnesota.  The MN DNR is offering an AIS volunteer training from the Watercraft Inspection Program staff at Whitewater State Park on June 13th.  AIS impact the ecosystems from the bottom up by reducing food sources for native fish and mussels, contribute to habitat loss and degradation, reduce fish populations, impact recreation, tourism and industry.  This is one way we can help reduce the spread of AIS.  Please let me know if you are interested in this or for more information on AIS threats and impacts to the unique aquatic resources (trout streams and wetlands in addition to lakes and rivers) of Wabasha County. 

 

You should be able to copy and paste the links in your browser.  The first link is general information on the AIS volunteer training and the following link is specifically for the training at Whitewater State Park.
