Webinar in this series from last month –
Rowing the boat:
The Michigan Invasive Species Program 2022 year in review
If you missed this webinar, you can check out the recording here.
The hearty crew of staff, partners and volunteers that make up the MISP navigated through some rough waters in 2022 with new detections of beech leaf disease and spotted lanternfly in the state, but they also managed to make a lot of headway. The program’s communications coordinator, Joanne Foreman, will highlight response efforts, prevention, outreach and survey work undertaken in 2022 to protect Michigan’s natural resources from the effects of invasive species.
Vampires of the Great Lakes:
A review of the binational sea lamprey control program
Tuesday, April 25, 2023, 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
The sea lamprey is often depicted as the poster child for invasive species in Michigan. With rows of teeth in their circular mouths, these parasitic fish attach themselves to larger sportfish and literally suck out their blood and internal fluids! Join Ross Shaw, communications and policy associate with the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, to learn more about the fascinating history of this species and the multi-faceted control program that keeps their populations in check.
More webinars are planned all the time and there are many previous sessions to review on the NotMISpecies website.
