Have you seen a new aquatic plant and aren’t sure what it is? Do you care about your local river or stream? Do you want to do more to prevent invasive species infestations? You can help stop infestations in their tracks when you become a River Runner.
Since 2009, the New Hampshire Rivers Council River Runners have been the early detection network for Didymo, Eurasian Milfoil, and other invasive species in our rivers and streams. Training is fun and free and monitoring is easy—just be observant when paddling, swimming, and fishing in your favorite river and then report what you find. You’ll meet new friends and learn valuable identification skills.
