Lake Minnetonka Conservation District - To protect and preserve Lake Minnetonka



Aquatic Invasive Species Task Force

AIS Task Force

August 9, 2019- 8:30am

The Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Task Force, which is formerly known as the Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM) Task Force, was initially established in response to the 1987  discovery of EWM in Lake Minnetonka.  The primary goal of this multi-agency Task Force was to assess the best means of managing EWM on Lake Minnetonka, while evaluating other management techniques such as herbicides and biological control (weevils).  Over time, this Task Force diversified its involvement to other AIS (in particular zebra mussels) and it was re-named the AIS Task Force.

This Task Force is currently chaired by LMCD Board Member Jay Green.  Its members are appointed annually by the LMCD Board of Directors and consist of current and past LMCD Directors, AIS professionals from various agencies, and Lake Minnetonka stakeholders, as follows:

  • Jay Green, LMCD Board Member (Chair)
  • Vickie Schleuning, LMCD Executive Director
  • Hennepin County Environment and Energy
  • Lake Minnetonka Association
  • Minnehaha Creek Watershed District
  • Minnesota Department of Natural Resources
  • Three Rivers Park District
  • University of Minnesota

Meetings are conducted in the LMCD office at 8:30 a.m. on the second Friday in February, March, May, June, August, September, November, and December.  Special meetings are scheduled on an as-needed basis by the Chair.
