Aquatic Invasive Species Training: Saint Croix Falls, WI

July 19

This aquatic invasive species training is hosted by The Wild Rivers Conservancy, Polk County LWRD, and National Park Service.

Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Looking for a fun opportunity to get out on the St. Croix River and learn to identify and monitor for aquatic invasive species?  Join us for a Project RED training on Friday, July 19th from 10 AM – 4 PM.

Project RED (Riverine Early Detectors) is a FREE monitoring program in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Extension and WDNR designed to train and empower volunteers to identify and report invasive species within river corridors statewide.

The Wild Rivers Conservancy, Polk County LWRD, and National Park Service will teach you how to:

  • Monitor your river by canoe, kayak, or on foot for species of concern.
  • Choose locations and a monitoring schedule that are convenient to you.
  • Utilize online data management tools to report your findings.

The protocols are easy and fun! Use this activity to become more familiar with your river or stream and to engage your friends and neighbors.
