Trained observers identify and report potential aquatic invasive species in Minnesota.

If you’re over 18 and live in Minnesota, you can be part of an organized statewide surveillance program as a trained observer for aquatic invasive species (AIS). In partnership with University of Minnesota Extension, the AIS Detector program will train you to identify and report potential aquatic invasive species such as Starry stonewort and zebra mussels. Early detection is key to preventing and effectively stopping their invasion. You'll play a critical role in helping Minnesota officials protect important lakes and rivers. This project is ideal for AIS managers, citizen scientists, lake association members, county AIS task force members, naturalists, and any member of the public who has a desire to learn more and get involved. Certification requires completion of approximately 16 hours of training, both online and in-person and costs $175 USD. After taking the course, you will have the knowledge and skills to identify and report AIS that you may come across as you are out enjoying Minnesota’s water resources.
