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 Grand River Watershed Alliance, Quiet World Sports, Jackson County Parks Department, Grand River Environmental Action Team, Jackson County Conservation District, and JWL CISMA.
