Stop Milfoil

                Know invasive aquatic species,                                       take action against them               

Invasive aquatic species hitch rides on clothing, boats, and items           used in the water. When brought to another lake or stream,                   the nuisance species may spread. If conditions are right, these                 introduced species become established and cause drastic changes.

Aquatic hitchhikers pose these threats:

  •  Reduce game and fish populations
  •  Ruin boat engines and jam steering equipment
  •  Make lakes/rivers unusable for boaters  and swimmers
  • Degrade ecosystems
  • Reduce native species
  • Reduce property values
  • Affect local economies of water-dependent communities

To register your boat, purchase Milfoil sticker or to get current boating laws, please contact:
