Education and Outreach

A large part of AIS programming is continuing to share information and connect people to resources.  Along with brochures specific to the invasive species infestations in Kandiyohi, we are promoting our decontamination units.  Decontamination is offered for free at the Saulsbury Beach Access on Green Lake.  Call (320) 214-6730 for hours and information on an additional decontamination unit.

These details are shared through radio ads, local magazines, gas stations, giveaways, sentry units, and at access sites.

We are also working with an independent educator who is a former teacher to provide an educational program that aligns with State science standards to 7
th graders in Willmar and New London Spicer middle schools to engage younger audiences around AIS issues.  In 2019 about 430 students received this program.
