The Great American Canoe Festival presents the Aquatic Invasive Species Sentry Program.
Join the AIS Sentry program and learn to survey your favorite body of water and identify aquatic invasive species. Sentries will be given a field guide and training administered by Lake and St. Louis Counties to aid identification and surveying of AIS.
Identification sessions will run on Saturday, June 10 from 9am-12:30pm and include classroom and lakeside training (Semers Beach). Spread the word, not the species!
This is the first of four AIS Citizen Sentry training opportunities sponsored by WICOLA this summer.

___June 14th- Vermilion Lake (Classroom at Greenwood Town Hall)
