Fighting Invasive Species on the Rock River

During the month of June, 62 volunteers came out to trainings across southern Wisconsin as part of River Alliance of Wisconsin’s Rock River Snapshot Initiative. Aiming to locate populations of aquatic invasive species on the Rock River and other streams that flow into it, this initiative trained volunteers to identify invasive species and encouraged them to search local stream sites.

Streams searched included the Yahara River in Dane County, Rubicon River in Washington County, Spring Brook in Rock County and Turtle Creek in Rock and Walworth Counties.  Read more.

In the first incarnation of that bill, we decried the handout it represented to the aquaculture industry, and said it “stunk to high hell.”  Well, that bill is back.  And it still stinks.  Read more.
