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. Annual progress reports and a final report summarizing the five-year project will be provided to DNR. If consultant is to provide the final report, it is recommended the Grantee provide the DNR Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator with a draft for comment on report adequacy prior to making final payment to the consultant. DNR to receive both paper and electronic .pdf copies of the final report along with, or prior to, submission of grantee's final payment request.
