Paddlers 18+ years are invited to join Michigan Sea Grant and partners for a one-day program about protecting water trails from aquatic invasive species (AIS). Participants will learn about the dangers of AIS, how to identify them, and how to report sightings through the Midwest Invasive Species Information Network. Then head out for an hour paddle on a nearby water trail. Kayaks, gear, and lunch provided!

This is a free workshop thanks to Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program with coordinating assistance from Southwest Michigan Planning Commission, Two Rivers Coalition, and SW x SW Corner CISMA.
