Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS)

Are non-native plants, animals, and pathogens that live primarily in water, thrive in a new environment, cause economic loss, environmental damage, and harm to human health.


The Native Buttercup is doing well. This is the plant with white flowers.  We mapped all buttercup patches around the lake and found 51 Buttercup sites (see below).

It also appears this is a big year for wild rice. We recorded all wild rice patches and found it at 64 sites (see map below).
