Hennepin County with U of M Extension offers free AIS Detector training in May

AIS Detectors documenting lake weeds

Partnering with the U of M Extension, Hennepin County is hosting two free aquatic invasive species (AIS) detector course options this spring.

The course is an introduction to AIS science, identification, and surveillance. You will learn how to identify and report invasive species, best practices for preventing the spread of AIS, relevant rules and regulations, and how to search for AIS on your own.

This course consists of two portions: a self-paced online course and an in-person workshop with the instructors. The self-paced online course takes approximately 8 hours to complete and must be completed prior to the in-person workshop.

In-person workshop options (only 1 day required):

  • Friday, May 5 in Minneapolis from 9 am to 5 pm
  • Friday, May 12 in Wayzata from 9 am to 5 pm
