Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Sentry Program
The AIS Sentry Program educates and empowers community members to recognize and report aquatic invasive species throughout St. Louis County. The AIS Sentry Program helps prevent and limit the spread of AIS in waters throughout St. Louis County.
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.
Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program
Volunteers collect data on birds, frogs, and their habitats to assess populations and their associations, contribute to to conservation management, and increase public awareness.
Great Lakes Worm Watch
Great Lakes Worm Watch is committed to increasing public understanding and appreciation of the role of exotic earthworms in ecosystems change across the region.
Integrated Monarch Butterfly Monitoring Strategy
A national initiative to monitor monarch populations and habitat throughout the breeding range. The IMS uses a spatially balanced sampling scheme and draws from existing citizen science programs to deliver a suite of protocols that capture many aspects of habitat quality, threats, and monarch use of that habitat. Data gathered through the IMS contribute to existing population and habitat models that inform broad scale monarch conservation!
Midwest Invasive Species Information Network
The goal of this regional resource is to assist both experts and citizen scientists in the detection and identification of invasive species in support of the successful management of invasive species.
Minnesota Forest Pest First Detector Program
Volunteers are trained to help identify the occurrence of Emerald Ash Borer and other forest pests in MN.
Project RED: Riverine Early Detectors
Volunteers are trained to detect invasive species early, when it is still possible to isolate or eradicate them.
Monitoring and collecting Smoky-winged Beetle Bandit Wasps as an early detection tool for Emerald Ash Borer.
