July 2-8, 2017 marked Aquatic Invasive Species Week. It's always important to remember to Clean, Drain, and Dry your water-craft before and after entering a water body. Doing so will help reduce the risk of spreading aquatic invasive species.
It's important to remember that not only motorized water-craft need to be Cleaned, Drained, and Dried! Kayaks, water boards, waders, and other items used while in the water should also be held to the same standard.
ISN hosted a Landing Blitz along with the Benzie Conservation District and Crystal Lake And Watershed Association as well as participated in one held by the Manistee Conservation District on Bear Lake with help from the Benzie Conservation District's Aquatic Invasive Species team.
Thank you to all who participated!
