Fast Facts about the River
Have you ever seen that plant before? That seems like a new fish. Why are there so many snail shells on the shore now? If you find yourself asking these kind of questions and making these types of statements, it's time to think about reporting invasive species. Invasive species reporting is a very important component to conserving the River. The sooner new infestations are found, the less management work will have to be completed in the future which means saving money. If something doesn't seem quite right, report it to a local agency or check out the Great Lakes Early Detection Network (GLEDN) app to report directly from your phone!
Ways to Protect the River
Keep an eye out for any invasive species and stay up to date with possible threats to your area. If possible, take a picture or a sample of the species to allow for a positive identification of the species.
The St. Croix River Association is dedicated to preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species as we protect, restore and celebrate the St. Croix River and its watershed.
