Register now for AIS Snapshot Day 2020!
August 15th 9 AM - 12 PM
Snapshot Day is a statewide, one-day event that connects volunteers, water lovers, and local groups in a search for aquatic invasive species (AIS). You can help protect Wisconsin's rivers and lakes from these invasive plants and animals that negatively impact habitat, wildlife, recreation and health. This event is coordinated in partnership with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, UW Extension, over 20 partners, and YOU!
*Safety first: The event will be modified this year due to COVID-19 concerns. Wear your mask, maintain social distancing, and attend with members of your household.
Step 1: Prior to the event, all volunteers will participate in a virtual training hosted by River Alliance. The training is scheduled for August 6th at 11 am but the recording can be viewed anytime before the event.
Step 2: On Snapshot Day, August 15, 2020, participants will be ready to venture to selected monitoring sites to get to know their waters and help to discover any aquatic invasive species. This is a free event that is recommended for ages 8 and up; minors must be accompanied by an adult
Glacierland will be leading the Manitowoc County Snapshot Day, but there are sites in counties across Wisconsin. For more information on the event click here
