WI Partnerships for Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention

Purpose

Through prevention, education, and monitoring we will create a tight barrier at WI Great Lakes that limit invasive species movements into and out of the GL and inland lakes.

Objective

The major goals of CLMN AIS Trainings are: •Train citizens to become familiar with some more common native aquatic plants and animals. •Train citizens to monitor for some common aquatic invasive species (AIS). •Train citizens how to communicate information about AIS with others. The goals of Project RED are: •Identify invasive species in Wisconsin’s rivers •Examine potential roles for citizens and volunteer groups at the local level •Develop monitoring protocols and data management resources for volunteers •Provide technical support to local organizations to take on invasive species in their local rivers For the primary objectives of CLMN AIS monitoring see page 3 and 6 of Aquatic Invasive Species Monitoring Procedures (Herman 2010)

Outcome

•Prevent the spread of invasive species beyond their current range. •Increase early detection and containment of established species so as to limit their spread. •Increase invasive species monitoring data to help drive local, state and federal management decisions.
