AIS Jr. Inspector

Learn how to help prevent the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) in Minnesota's waters. AIS are plants and animals from other regions of the world that cause problems when they spread to Minnesota. One of the most common ways they move is by hitching a ride on boats and other gear. In this activity, kids and adults learn how to inspect boats and gear for AIS, and what to do if you find them.

Kit includes:

  • Toy boats, water craft and gear
  • Hidden AIS stickers
  • Activity sheets & markers
  • Instructions
  • AIS Jr. Inspector badges

Note: we also teach a version of this activity using our lifesize boat! Contact Maya mswope@rpbcwd.or if you'd like to schedule a school visit.
