The Burnett Co. Green Lake Association is sponsoring an AIS prevention and education project including a Clean Boat/Clean Water inspection program, construction of information kiosk at the landing, education workshop for AIS prevention and shoreline protection, soil nutrient testing, water clarity testing, and monitoring for invasive aquatic plants. Deliverables include: 1) Final Report summarizing accomplishments of the project including watercraft inspection and lake monitoring reports detailing time and number of people reached; 2) A summary of the Early Detection, Rapid Response Plan; 3) CB/CW survey results; daily results will be entered into the DNR CB/CW database; 4) Verification of workshops and/or inspector training (agendas and attendance lists); 5) Report on construction/maintenance of signage; 6) Aquatic plant sampling monitoring results including boat and shoreline monitoring observations of any detected aquatic invasive species with maps; 7) Water clarity monitoring results will be entered into the DNR SWIMS database; 8) Report on soil nutrient samples; 9) AIS related materials generated or paid for by this grant. Special project conditions: The sponsor shall immediately contact the DNR in the event of a new aquatic invasive species infestation. This scope summarizes the project detailed in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein. Data, records, and reports, including GIS-based maps and digital images, must be submitted to the Department in a format specified by the AIS Coordinator. It is recommended that the AIS Coordinator be provided with a draft final report.

Reports and Documents
Green Lake was searched one day in 2010 and five days in 2011 for the presence of non-native aquatic invasive macrophyte species and none were found. The lake appeared to be in a healthy, natural state. However, several invasive terrestrial and wetland plant species such as Japanese knotweed, reed canary grass and Canada thistle were noted.
