WINNEBAGO LAKES COUNCIL, INC.: Winnebago Pool Lakes AIS Education & Outreach Project

The Winnebago Lakes Council proposes to develop a comprehensive plan for preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) into and from the Winnebago Pool (Lakes Winnebago, Butte des Morts, Winneconne and Poygan) during the period 2008 - 2009. The project elements and deliverables are specified in Winnebago Lake Council's Aquatic Invasive Species Grant application, dated February 1, 2008. The project includes initiating the first phase of a two-phase strategic planning process to produce a Strategic Plan for AIS prevention in the Winnebago Pool Lakes; implementing the "Clean Boats, Clean Waters" and citizen-based monitoring programs, including hiring watercraft inspectors and training volunteers to conduct watercraft inspection and AIS monitoring; conducting scientific analyses of current AIS infestations and a risk assessment for potential invasive species; and conducting outreach activities at public events. Watercraft inspection records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database.
