February 2018 announcements
Save the date for Starry Trek: August 18, 2018!
Join us for a day searching for one of Minnesota's newest aquatic invasive species, starry stonewort (and other invaders). Starry stonewort is an invasive algae that was first found in Lake Koronis in 2015 and has since spread to 11 Minnesota lakes (learn more about starry stonewort and our research here). Now we are asking for your help in searching other lakes to better understand its distribution in Minnesota. Watch for more details at www.StarryTrek.org.
