Aquatic Invasive Species Outreach Workshop, Thursday, March 9, 2006

The Office of the Great Lakes is hosting a workshop entitled, AIS Prevention, Control, and Outreach Opportunities for Local Communities, during Michigan State University's 2006 Agriculture and Natural Resources Week.  The workshop will be held on Thursday, March 9th at the Kellogg Center, Room 105AB.  The  conference will provide participants with an understanding of the need to act on a local level, the importance of public awareness of aquatic invasive species and the problems they cause, the importance of prevention and control and what steps individuals and groups can take to prevent introduction and spread to rivers, lakes and streams in their community.  Presentations will focus on new and existing programs available to communities to educate the public about  preventative measures, grant opportunities, as well as techniques to manage and control invaders in their community.  There is no cost for the half day workshop, but seating is limited, so please contact the Office of the Great Lakes at 517-335-4056 to register.
