Partners in Prevention – Protecting our Waters from Aquatic Invasive Species

March 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time

Aquatic invasive species such as quagga and zebra mussels could cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars a year and close down access to waters for recreation and commercial opportunities. Invasive freshwater mussels clog water intake pipes and filters, reducing water pumping capabilities for power and water treatment plants. Once established, these mussels will change ecosystems and food sources critical to native mussels and species such as salmon and trout.

Preventing the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species requires everyone to work together to protect our waters. Join us for a webinar exploring the partnerships and activities happening across jurisdictions.

Speakers:

  • Eric Anderson, Captain, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
  • Teagan Ward, Aquatic Invasive Species Program Coordinator, City of Bellingham
  • Cassie Hagemann, Biologist, Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area
  • Lisa Dowling, Natural Resources Specialist, Chelan County Natural Resources Department
