Project RED Training 2020

July 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

FREE
In the interest of public health and safety we are cancelling the in-person portion of the Project Red training but are proceeding with an online virtual training (information provided below). With any questions or concerns, email Katie at katies@scramail.com. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
Join us on a quest for Aquatic Invasive Species!

Project RED (riverine early detectors) is a monitoring program that trains citizens to identify and report invasive species within river corridors statewide.

Learn how to:

MONITOR your river by canoe, kayak, or on foot for species of concern.
REPORT your findings to WI DNR.
GET TO KNOW your river or stream using easy and fun protocols.

During the free virtual training, Wild Rivers Conservancy, Polk County LWRD, and NPS in partnership with River Alliance WI will teach you to monitor your river by canoe, kayak, or on foot for species of concern. They will help you choose locations and a monitoring schedule that are convenient to you. They will also provide you with online data management tools available from the Wisconsin DNR that help you report your findings.

The protocols are easy and fun. In addition, you can use this activity to become more familiar with your river or stream and to engage your friends and neighbors!
