Coordinated in partnership with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, UW Extension, over 20 partners, and YOU!

On Snapshot Day you will:

  • Get outdoors at a local Training Site where your Site Leader will teach you how to identify species of concern.
  • Venture out to nearby Monitoring Sites, collecting specimens and getting to know your waters.
  • Return to your Training Site to confirm your finds and celebrate.
