PurposeProject specifically for the Sheboygan River AOC sites monitored for AIS. Wisconsin's rivers are vulnerable to invasion by a number of invasive species from Eurasian milfoil to Japanese knotweed. The key to successfully protecting your river is detecting invasives early when it is still possible to isolate or eradicate the infestation. The longer we wait to find them and fight them, the more money and time it will take. Volunteers are invaluable for early detection. During a free training volunteers learn to monitor rivers by canoe, kayak, or on foot for approximately 15 species of concern. Project RED (Riverine Early Detectors) is a collaboration between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Sheboygan YMCA Camp Y-Koda and the River Alliance of Wisconsin.
