VLAWMO – Aquatic Invasive Species Training:

What are aquatic invasive species? How can you tell if a plant is native or invasive? Join us for this free outdoor demo as we look at key species that are either currently invasive or pose a future threat to our water resources. Participants can attend just to learn or step into a leadership role in helping VLAWMO and Ramsey County monitor for new infestations. For questions contact VLAWMO at (651) 204-6070.

Submerged Aquatic Plant Demo:

Have you ever been flustered by aquatic plants? What are they, and what are they good for? Join VLAWMO for an up-close look at some common plants, what they mean for the lake, and their management strategies. For questions contact VLAWMO at (651) 204-6074.
