Aquatic Invasives Grant
Aquatic Invasives Early Detection and Response
In the summer of 2012, during a release of Galerucella beetles to control Purple Loosestrife growing on the lake and river, it was noted that a significant population of Iris pseudacorus (Yellow Iris) was present. The "Yellow Iris Rapid Response on Upper Lake St. Croix in Douglas County, Wisconsin" project was developed with goals for control, local citizen education, Wild Rice seeding, and information on Iris pseudacorus abundance.
