Since 2009, the New Hampshire Rivers Council river runners have been the early detection network for Didymo, Eurasian Milfoil and other invasive species in our rivers and streams. Training is fun and free and monitoring is easy – just be observant when paddling, swimming and fishing in your favorite rivers and then report what you find. You’ll meet new friends and learn valuable identification skills.
There will be a training session July 23, hosted by the Upper Merrimack River Local Advisory Committee, at the Forest Society’s Conservation Center, 54 Portsmouth St., Concord, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
There is no fee to attend a workshop, but space is limited so registration is required. Please visit NHRivers.org/river-runners to register.
This training is made possible by a grant from the N.H. Department of Environmental Services Exotic Species Prevention Grant Program and generous gifts from New Hampshire Rivers Council members like you.
