Aquatic Invasive Species Snapshot Day

Sat, August 20, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Saturday, August 20, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. | Janesville, Statewide

Aquatic Invasive Species Snapshot Day is a statewide, one-day, search for aquatic invasive species (AIS). Volunteers all over the state will spread out to help assess their communities for AIS. Every year there are new detections made! Last year over 150 volunteers rolled up their sleeves to monitor at more than 200 sites. Volunteers help make this event an effective, coordinated effort!

Rock River Coalition is hosting Snapshot Day in Rock County. We’ll meet at Kiwanis Park in Janesville. Register below. Not in Rock County? Find out which location is hosting your county excursion in the link below!
