“Aquatic Invasive Species Monitoring” Training Workshop
April 27th from 9 am – 12 pm (south) and May 25th from 1 pm – 4 pm (north)
The Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program will be offering an aquatic invasive plant monitoring program, “Aquatic Invasive Species Monitoring.” The information gathered through this program will help maintain a record of aquatic vegetation (native and invasive) as well as provide an early warning for new invasive plants on our lakes.
We will be hosting training workshops that provide classroom and field experience needed to conduct vegetation surveys. This is a requirement to participate in the program. We have two training workshops scheduled at this time. The first will be on April 27th form 9 am – 12 pm at Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs with the field component conducted at a separate location. The second will be May 25th from 1 pm – 4 pm at the Wawasee Area Conservancy Federation Education Center, 11586 N. SR 13, Syracuse, IN. Everyone (current and new volunteers) is welcome to come and multiple volunteers per lake are encouraged.
Please register at least one week in advance by contacting Sarah Powers at email@example.com. Provide your lake name, affiliation, and contact information.
