Workshop participants will gain an understanding of the impacts aquatic invasive species (AIS) have on the environment; learn to recognize them in their region; learn how to take action and prevent spreading the invasive species by inspecting and cleaning equipment and watercraft.
AIS pose serious threats to water delivery systems, hydroelectric facilities, agriculture, boating, fishing and the environment. Recreational activities, including boating and fishing, can spread the species from infested waters to uninfected waters.
