Brodhead Chapter Trout Unlimited May 2016 General Meeting

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 - 7:00pm EDT

Join the Brodhead Chapter Trout Unlimited in welcoming Sara N. Whitely, the extention director of the Pennsylvania Sea Grant for Penn State University and her presentation on Aquatic Invasive Species.

Aquatic invasive species are species found outside their natural geographic range that cause ecological or economic harm, or harm to human health.  Aquatic invasive species can be spread by human activities, such as boating, angling, and water gardening, to name a few.  Preventing the introduction and spread of AIS should be a top priority in Pennsylvania as the state has more than 84,000 miles of streams, 77 miles of Great Lakes shoreline and many inland lakes, and shares five major watersheds with   other states and Canada.  In this talk, PASG’s Sarah Whitney will present information about AIS of concern in Pennsylvania and highlight the steps boaters, anglers, and others can take to   prevent the introduction and spread of AIS.
