Group to focus on aquatic invasive species
Protecting Illinois’ natural areas and waterbodies requires the public’ help. Here is a chance to voice your opinion and help shape statewide education and outreach efforts to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species.
Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant and North Carolina State University are conducting a focus group in Glencoe on Wednesday, September 26th from 6-8 p.m. at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
AIS can easily be released into the environment by aquarium and water garden species hobbyists. The goals of this discussion are to learn what you think about practices to reduce the spread of AIS and to help design future campaigns that speak to the people of Illinois.
