Watershed Network Gathering - Aquatic Invasive Species
Event Description

5:30pm - 7:30pm

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) present new and continuing challenges to managing our water resources. How do you know they’re there? What do you do when you find them? How do you go about removing them? This Watershed Network Gathering will provide an update on state and county efforts to combat AIS and feature several local watershed groups that will share their stories of working on AIS removal and prevention.  Afterwards, there will be plenty of time to mingle and connect to find out more details about the specific projects you are interested in.

Presenters:
Sue Jones, Dane County Land and Water Resources Department
Jeanne Scherer, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
Pete Jopke, Dane County Land and Water Resources Department 
Bobbi Peckarsky, Black Earth Creek Watershed Association (New Zealand Mudsnails)
Jim Krause, Friends of Cherokee Marsh (Phragmites)
Lynne Diebel, Friends of Badfish Creek (Japanese Knotweed)
