About the event

Join the statewide search for aquatic invasive species in this fun and important annual event. The Friends of Cherokee Marsh and DNR staff will be hosting at Warner Park with monitoring sites at Cherokee Marsh Warner Park, and other nearby streams, lakes, and lagoons. This is event is recommended for ages 8 and up; minors must be accompanied by an adult. Learn more and register early! At the registration page, choose the Madison location. The more volunteers who register early, the more sites we can survey.

Snapshot Day is a statewide, one-day event connecting volunteers, water lovers, and local groups in a search for aquatic invasive species (AIS). You can help protect Wisconsin’s rivers, lakes, and wetlands from these invasive plants and animals that may negatively impact habitat, wildlife, recreation and health. This event is coordinated in partnership with UW-Madison Division of Extension, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, local partners, and YOU! Volunteers will look for invasive species at critical monitoring sites, and potential invasive species will be verified and cataloged with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to guide species control and conservation management plans.  No experience is necessary and training is provided virtually prior to the event. We will assemble at the picnic shelter south of the Warner Park Rainbow Shelter. Look for signs pointing the way.
