The Waukesha County Land Conservancy (WCLC) owns 27 environmentally-significant properties totaling more than 2,900 acres in Waukesha County. Most of these properties contain ecologically valuable wetlands and waterways with rare plant and wildlife species.
The primary goal of the project was to develop a comprehensive aquatic invasive species (AIS) plan that prioritizes AIS control and management activities on 17 ecologically significant properties in Waukesha County. This project inventoried 10 currently managed properties and 7 additional properties that WCLC owns. This plan has since expanded to include other non-aquatic invasive species (non-AIS) to better educate and utilize interns and to gain a better understanding of the totality of the invasive species present on WCLC properties.
This document is a one-page (front and back) identification guide for AIS in lakes, streams and wetlands. It includes photographs and distribution maps.
This document is a guide to the target species for AIS monitoring in lakes, streams and wetlands. It includes photographs, detailed descriptions that highlight key identifying characteristics and distribution maps.
