Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Trackers Program
Citizens are trained to monitor changes in populations of aquatic invasive species over time in specific locations.
Bad River Watershed Monitoring Program
The overall objective of the BRWA Water Quality Monitoring Program is to establish at least a four-year baseline of water quality on the streams and rivers within our service area. The baseline data will be used to determine the overall health of watersheds and troubled spots will be investigated.
Clean Boats, Clean Waters
Boat inspectors help perform boat and trailer checks, disseminate informational brochures, and educate boaters on how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species.
Mussel Monitoring Program of Wisconsin
Over half of Wisconsin’s 51 native mussel species (also known as clams) are listed as species of greatest conservation need or we need information on where they currently occur. Threats like habitat alteration (dams, siltation) and the presence of invasive mussels (zebra mussels) pose major threats to the existence of our native mussels. The Mussel Monitoring Program of Wisconsin would like your help in finding out what mussels occur in your area!
Project RED: Riverine Early Detectors
Volunteers are trained to detect invasive species early, when it is still possible to isolate or eradicate them.
Water Action Volunteers Stream Monitoring Program
Water Action Volunteers (WAV) is a statewide program for Wisconsin citizens who want to learn about and improve the quality of Wisconsin’s streams and rivers.
Zebra Mussel Monitoring Program
Volunteers help track Zebra Mussel distributions by monitoring lakes and rivers where they live.
Zebra Mussel Watch
Citizens report Zebra Mussel sightings to help prevent the spread of the invasive shellfish.
