Project RED

Project RED (Riverine Early Detectors)

Wisconsin’s rivers are vulnerable to invasion by a number of invasive species from Eurasian milfoil to Japanese knotweed. The key to successfully protecting your river is detecting invasives early when it is still possible to isolate or eradicate the infestation. The longer we wait to find them and fight them, the more money and time it will take. Volunteers like you are invaluable for early detection.

Project RED (Riverine Early Detectors) is coordinated by the River Alliance of Wisconsin. They offer free trainings and data management tools to volunteers who are concerned about invasive species and their rivers in Wisconsin.
