ADV - AIS on the Water- Starry Stonewort on Lake KoronisBug-Bee Hive Resort Lodge and
Paynesville, MN 56362
Join University of Minnesota Extension and Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center experts out on the waters of Lake Koronis, the site of Minnesota’s first known starry stonewort infestation. Anyone can attend this event, but current AIS Detectors should be sure to check their e-mail for a special coupon code. Starry stonewort is an invasive plant-like algae that was first discovered in Minnesota in 2015. There are currently 11 known lakes in Minnesota with starry stonewort. You will have the opportunity to join us for a floating workshop to learn more about this invader and current control efforts. No experience is necessary for participants. We will cover the basics of starry stonewort identification, biology, and impacts and then take a deeper dive with local guest speakers. You will also get to enjoy some hands-on learning as we pull live starry stonewort on board along with other aquatic plant life to put your ID skills to the test. We will wrap up with a lunch and learn session on dry land (lunch is provided). Note: Enrollment is available through multiple channels, therefore the course may have more people registered than indicated below.
The course cost is $35 and includes course manuals and supplies.
