Invasive Plant Survey Team

Our Invasive Plant Survey Team is comprised of specially trained staff members and volunteers who locate, identify, and document invasive plant infestations in our waters.

The data they collect is then used to create a comprehensive map that displays the locations and levels of milfoil infestations so that we can determine the best harvesting locations for maximum impact.

How Can Shorefront Property Owners Help?

If you own shorefront property and see a suspicious plant, there are three steps you ought to take:

Spot It

If you see an aquatic plant that you think may be an invasive species, take note of its location so that we may find it again.

Snap It

Take a photo of the suspicious plant. Do not touch the plant, causing fragments to float away and allowing it to spread further.

Send It

Send us your photo so that our trained staff can identify the plant and determine if it needs prompt removal.
