Adopt A Dock Volunteer Program

Adopt a Dock is a citizen science initiative in which lakeshore residents monitor for aquatic invasive species. Want to join the team? Email Maya:

In the spring, volunteers attach monitoring plates to the end of their docks. They check your plates once a month, and report observations to the watershed district.
