On August 5, 2017, the Lake Minnetonka Conservation District, Lake Minnetonka Association, and others around the state will partner with the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center and community volunteers in a search for Starry stonewort in area lakes.
Starry stonewort is an invasive algae that was first found in Lake Koronis in 2015 and has since spread to nine Minnesota lakes. Early detection of this species is critical for control. Learning more about Starry stonewort and other aquatic invasive species can make a difference in the health of area lakes. The information gained will help researchers and managers understand its current distribution and potentially take action if new infestations are found.
If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please join us at the Excelsior Commons on Saturday, August 5th at 8:30am.
