If you enjoy fly fishing, kayaking, or weekends on the water Up North, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to get hands-on training about New Zealand mud snails (NZMS). This new aquatic invasive species has been spreading rapidly through high-quality trout streams in northern Michigan, and we want to prevent it from getting into the beautiful streams in southeast Michigan, like our Paint Creek.
The workshop will be at the Paint Creek Cider Mill, 4480 Orion Road, Rochester, MI 48306 this Wednesday, April 17 from 6 to 8 pm. Learn about New Zealand mud snail biology, fishing gear decontamination, and detecting them using a rapid assessment and eDNA sampling. Hope to see you there!
