Sentry Training Scheduled for Aquatic Invasive Species

The Burntside Lake Association’s Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) focus this summer is to train and develop more volunteer “Sentries” to monitor AIS across our lake.  By each of us keeping our eyes on the condition of our little corners of the lake, we can have a big impact on the prevention of AIS.  If you see something unusual in the lake, we have a process for confirming your findings and reporting it to the DNR for immediate action.  The faster we identify an infestation, the quicker we can respond to keep it localized or to eliminate it. By becoming a volunteer Aquatic Invasive Species Sentry, participants will learn:

  •  how to distinguish AIS from native species
  • the top AIS threats and the possible impact on our lake
  • early detection techniques and how to communicate potential AIS sightings

There will be two Sentry trainings this summer on Burntside Lake.

  1. Thursday, June 14th 9:30-12:00 – Camp DuNord
  2. Saturday, July 7th , 9:30-12:00 – 3173 Van Vac Road
