MANITOWOC PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT: Manitowoc Public School District AIS Educational Project


The Manitowoc Public School Dist proposes to develop an aquatic invasive species (AIS) education project in conjunction with the Wisconsin Maritime Museum (WMM) and Woodland Dunes Nature Center. The project elements & deliverables are specified in Manitowoc Public School District's AIS Control Grant Application, dated 7.26.06. The project includes providing AIS educational programming linked to public school sixth-grade science curriculum to all sixth grade classes in school year 2007/2008; creating permanent displays at three areas of the Rahr Memorial School Forest; creating one or more AIS informational exhibits at the WMM and developing a funding strategy to sustain the program beyond the grant period. Designs of the displays and exhibits created for this project will be submitted to DNR for approval prior to construction, & copies of the designs will be provided to DNR as part of the project's deliverables. Representatives from the Manitowoc Public School District, WMMand Woodland Dunes Nature Center will meet with a DNR project overview team at the initiation of the project to review its implementation strategy. Quarterly progress reports & a final report summarizing the project will be provided to DNR. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended that the Grantee provide the DNR AIS Coord with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR will be provided both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee's final payment request. If watercraft inspection is conducted as part of the project then those records will be entered into the State's online Watercraft Inspection Database. Any publications produced as part of the project will incorporate the "Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!"\FFFD brand.
