Project Riverine Early Detectors (RED) - Coordination


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 15 species of concern. Project Riverine Early Detectors (RED) is a collaboration between the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the National Institute for Invasive Species Science and the River Alliance of Wisconsin.
