Citizen Lake Monitoring Training - Park Falls - 06/17/2010

Purpose

9:00am-12:30pm Springstead Community Building/Town Hall To register for this workshop, or for more information, contact Heather Palmquist, AIS Coordinator for Iron County at (715) 561-2234 or lakes@ironcountywi.org This workshop will combine the Clean Boats, Clean Waters (CBCW) volunteer watercraft inspection program and the Citizen Lake Monitoring Network (CLMN) Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) monitoring workshops. The CBCW program provides an opportunity to learn how and why educational awareness is so important in preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS). This workshop will provide you with an overview of AIS, instructions on how to organize an effective volunteer watercraft inspection program, and hands-on training for watercraft inspections and AIS identification. For more information on the CBCW program, visit: http://www.uwsp.edu/cnr/uwexlakes/cbcw. The CLMN AIS monitoring workshop speakers provide details on AIS identification and life cycles; instructions on how to organize an effective monitoring team; where and when to look for the invasives; as well as what to do if you suspect that you have found an invasive plant or animal. Most workshops will offer hands-on training for invasive species identification. Workshop hosts will offer participants a monitoring kit at no charge (one free kit per lake).
