Come join LMCD at locations around Lake Minnetonka for a day of searching for starry stonewort and other aquatic invasive species!
Starry Trek is a statewide event focused on searching for starry stonewort, Minnesota’s newest aquatic invasive species. Starry Stonewort was originally introduced in 2015 on Lake Koronis. Since then, it has spread to 14 Minnesota lakes. At this event, participants will report to their local training site where they receive training on how to identify starry stonewort and other aquatic invasive species, and how to follow search protocols. Groups are then sent out to nearby public water accesses to search, find, and return with any suspicious organisms they found.
Registration is free and it is easy to sign up. You can register using the registration form. For more information and to register, please visit www.starrytrek.org.
