Help support MAISRC
The Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center’s establishment and initial research has been possible with significant funding through the Legislature from the State’s Clean Water Fund and the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, as recommended by the Legislative Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR). MAISRC needs to leverage these funds in order to find solutions to Minnesota’s AIS problems: support from private donors is essential!
Scientific conferences can be the intellectual stimulus that feeds researchers. This is where the lastest research results are shared, ideas generated, and concepts tested with peers. Dr. Eichmiller recently attended the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society, held in Quebec City, Canada, to present a talk titled “The relationship between the spatial distribution of common carp and their environmental DNA in a small lake.” Because our state grant funds cannot be used out of the country, Dr. Eichmiller was able to attend the conference with the help of a generous donor. Freshly inspired, Dr. Eichmiller will now be able to apply new ideas to her work detecting AIS in Minnesota with eDNA.
Private donations can make a difference! If you or your organization has an interest in helping to advance the Center’s efforts to find solutions to AIS problems, please contact Becca Nash, Associate Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (612) 624 - 7785.
Thank you to all our supporters and partners for helping to make the Center’s work possible!
