Join Us For Our 10th Annual Symposium
Nasty Aquatic Plant & Animal Species: Got ‘em? Get ‘em!
This year’s guest speakers will share information regarding exotic aquatic plant and animal species which are invading our region. Early detection, identification and prompt best management techniques will reduce the negative impacts of these unwelcomed organisms.
Paul Skawinski, Wisconsin Citizen Lake Monitoring Network Educator, will share information about problem aquatic plants that are here now and others that are swimming this way.

We will also present our 9th Annual Sweat Equity Award during the Symposium, which honors outstanding Southeastern Wisconsin citizens and organizations for their significant contributions to prevent, control or eradicate invasive species that harm our region’s lands, waters, and wetlands.
