Why give to MAISRC?
Here at MAISRC, we’re grateful for the support of private citizen and lake associations as we work to develop tools to detect, prevent, and control aquatic invasive species. If you or your lake association is considering a gift, consider what the Whitefish Area Property Owners Association had to say about why they give to MAISRC:
“The Whitefish Area Property Owners Association (WAPOA), a 1,200-member lake association in northern Crow Wing County, is actively engaged in watercraft inspections, education and information, and awareness of the threat of non-native aquatic invasive species (AIS) to the fourteen lakes comprising the Whitefish Chain of Lakes, as well as the more than 25 neighboring lakes. We consider the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC) as a “one of a kind” university-based research center actively engaged in long-term science-based solutions for the prevention and control of AIS. Our hope is that MAISRC will be our continual partner in Minnesota, and we are confident of that as we learn and understand the research underway, that enables all of us to aggressively manage and eliminate this present AIS threat. We support the Center and will continue to do so.”
