Invasive Species Prevention Grants & Partnerships

Grants are being provided to help local entities implement locally focused prevention efforts and to dove-tail those efforts with other ongoing statewide aquatic invasive species prevention efforts. These Grants are intended to help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species, especially zebra mussels and spiny waterfleas, into Minnesota waters.

Program Objectives

The goal of this grant program is to increase public awareness of the problems caused by aquatic invasive species and to educate the public about steps to take to reduce the spread of these species. Grants are given to projects done in areas at risk for spread of invasive species. One example of a statewide prevention effort is the Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers! campaign, which is being implemented by the DNR, Minnesota Sea Grant, Wildlife Forever, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
