Learn to Help Protect Our Rivers from Invasive Species 

Friday, June 5th, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Project Red 2015a

 

 

The River Alliance of Wisconsin’s Project RED (riverine early detectors) is a monitoring program that trains citizens to identify and report invasive species within river corridors and lakes. 


 The Ozaukee Washington County Land Trust and the UWM Field Station will host a classroom training and field monitoring practice workshop, to teach monitoring for invasive species in rivers.  All river enthusiasts are encouraged to attend.

 

During the free training, the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust and River Alliance will teach you to monitor your river for species of concern. They will help you choose locations and a monitoring schedule and provide you with online data management tools to help you report your findings.  

 

This Project Red workshop is sponsored by The Ozaukee Washington County Land Trust and The UWM Field Station,

and partially funded through a grant from the US EPA’s Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

The Mukwonago River watershed is home to over 50 species of fish including the threatened Longear Sunfish (Lepomis megalotis), several species of rare freshwater mussels, an incredible diversity of wetlands, and some of the highest water quality in Southeastern Wisconsin.

The mission of the Friends of the Mukwonago River is to protect the Mukwonago River and its associated watershed ecosystems by way of education, advocacy, and promotion of sound land use throughout the watershed.
