Aquatic Invasive Animal Training

  • Hemlock Crossing 8115 West Olive Road West Olive, MI, 49460 United States (map)

Over 180 aquatic invasive species from around the world have established breeding populations in the Great Lakes Basin.  Many of these species have had significant impacts on the environmental and economic health of the region.  Participants will learn about the far-reaching effects these invaders have caused as well as how to identify several of these invasive species that are spreading through the inland waters of West Michigan by Dr. Dan O’Keefe, with Michigan Sea Grants.   This class will also feature a field portion to help participants locate and sample likely habitants for these invaders.
