Is that milfoil or bladderwort? YIKES! Is that water chestnut I spy? Just think, that could be the last time you ever pose those questions…as long as you attend the FREE River Runners invasive species training workshop in Bow, NH on July 17th! I’ll be there and hope you will join me.

You are invited: River Runners™    invasive species training (free!) workshop
July 17, 2017 | 7:00 – 8:30 PM

Dear River and Watershed friends,
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 join the ranks of River Runners™.

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—and you will be a proud citizen scientist.

The Upper Merrimack Monitoring Program is proud to host a River Runners™ invasive species training workshop, conducted by the New Hampshire Rivers Council, on
Monday, July 17, 2017 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Baker Free Library
509 South Street, Bow, NH

Light refreshments will be provided by the
Upper Merrimack River Local Advisory Committee.
