Upcoming webinars on New Zealand mud snail! The New Zealand mud snail (NZMS, Potamopyrgus antipodarum) is one of the most wide-spread aquatic invasive invertebrates in the world. After being initially found in North America in the Snake River, Idaho in 1987, the first populations of NZMS in the Great Lakes region were discovered in Lake Ontario in 1991. Since then, they have been found in all other Great Lakes except Lake Huron. Recently, NZMS have been found in inland rivers and streams of the Great Lakes raising concerns about their further spread and their potential impacts on local aquatic systems. The Great Lakes New Zealand Mud Snail Collaborative is a regional approach to NZMS management and includes the expertise of state, federal, academic, and non-profit institutions. The Collaborative strives to improve knowledge on the ecosystem impacts of NZMS, develop strategies to minimize their spread, inform management initiatives, and raise public awareness.
Please join us in upcoming monthly webinars to learn more about NZMS research, monitoring, management, education, and outreach efforts in the Great Lakes region! Please see the flyer for upcoming webinar dates, topics, and how to register!

On going fundraising for restoration of Cheboygan Veterans Park
The park was originally established right after World War I. 34 trees were planted to honor 34 local veterans KIA. Additional monuments were added over the years, however for the most part the park had been neglected until now. A committee of volunteer veterans started a complete restoration project a couple of years ago and we have just completed phase 2. We have an active Facebook page and also a GoFundMe site.
