Stakeholder Participation Opportunities
Recording of 2023 Public Stakeholder Input Meeting:
Dear AIS Program partners and stakeholders,
A planning process for management of aquatic invasive plants on the Brule River will be conducted under Wisconsin Surface Water Grant #AEPP66022 in 2023, and there are several upcoming opportunities for public input. Input from our partners and stakeholders is incredibly valuable to the planning process for this important resource, so please take this opportunity to share your thoughts and contribute to the development of the aquatic plant management plan.
The result of this process will be an AIS focused Aquatic Plant Management Plan, which will summarize baseline data, identify goals and priorities for the management of invasive aquatic plants, and make recommendations for beneficial conservation practices to achieve those goals. Right now, we are asking stakeholders to share their input in a quick 5-minute survey (link below) by Dec. 24. Results will be summarized and discussed at the January 10 public input meeting, and incorporated into the draft plan. The draft plan will be posted for public review online (Douglas County AIS website) during spring of 2023. Once approved, the Aquatic Plant Management plan will help to guide implementation of recommended invasive aquatic plant management activities to keep the Brule river healthy and protect water quality and habitat.
