May 4, 2022: Webinar – Watershed Monitoring & Restoration: Helping prevent Aquatic Invasive Species in the Columbia Basin

Aquatic invasive species (AIS) in the watershed can have significant effects on water quality and the health of entire aquatic ecosystems!

On May 4th, 10-11am PT we will be co-hosting a free webinar with the Living Lakes Canada about AIS impacts, species ID, prevention, how to report sightings, and best management practices when working around water. We will will also introduce CKISS’s new community science monitoring initiative that is supported by Living Lakes Canada’s National Lake Blitz program.

Water monitoring and restoration work are key when it comes to maintaining, conserving and protecting watershed security, but so is understanding how the proliferation of invasive species can influence the health of a watershed. It is increasingly important that water stewardship practitioners become aware of invasive species in their watersheds.

Living Lakes Canada will introduce the broad range of water monitoring programs that the organization is currently delivering in the Columbia Basin, including the Columbia Basin Water Hub and associated Water Monitoring Framework, and will speak to why AIS is important to this work.
