Project Red Training 2019
July 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFREE
Project RED (riverine early detectors) is a monitoring program that trains citizens to identify and report invasive species within river corridors statewide.
During the free training, SCRA, Polk County LWRD, and NPS in partnership with River Alliance WI, will teach you to monitor your river by canoe, kayak, or on foot for species of concern. They will help you choose locations and a monitoring schedule that are convenient to you. They will also provide you with online data management tools available from the Wisconsin DNR that help you report your findings.
The protocols are easy and fun. In addition, you can use this activity to become more familiar with your river or stream and to engage your friends and neighbors!
The training is scheduled for Friday July 19th, from 10 AM to 4 PM in St. Croix Falls. A paddle on the St. Croix River will be held during the afternoon portion of the event.
