Aquatic Invasives Grant
Aquatic Invasives Education
During the past few years, with the help of this and other grants, we have been able to do a very thorough scientific study of our watershed. This project was designed to address one of the State of Wisconsins most immediate needs: the monitoring of our flowing waters to increase our understanding of the spread of invasive species through the vectors (pathways) shown in the map and how they are impacting riparian ecosystems. More specifically, this project piloted a DNR-authorized river/stream aquatic plant survey method that was developed by our consultant in close cooperation with DNR Departmental staff (see consultants assessment, attached). The goal was that once this protocol was used and the results reviewed, this survey method would be adopted by the DNR and would be made available to other river groups in the State of Wisconsin.
