Decontaminate your monitoring gear!
Scientific monitoring is essential for learning more about our environment, but scientists and volunteers can transfer invasive species from one place to another and cause more harm than good!
HRWC is equipping our volunteers with decontamination kits that will be used to stop invasive species spread. Kits have been given to MiCorps partners across the state to do the same!
Download and read this Invasive Species Prevention Kit (pdf) for more detailed information: kit contents, procedures, and bleach information. All volunteers should watch this video and follow these few simple steps! Inspect, Remove, Disinfect and Dry.
