Report an Aquatic Invasive Species

You are the key to early detection of new invasions. Alert us if you find a suspicious plant or animal. Here's what to do:

1. Note the exact location you found it

2. Take up-close, detailed photos if possible

3. Identify basic characteristics (do you know what it is?)

4. If within Minnehaha Creek Watershed District please complete the online reporting form to notify an MCWD AIS Specialist at or 952-471-7873.

5. If outside Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, notify a local MN DNR AIS Specialist

See our MCWD's Least Wanted page or the identification section of our Early Detector How-To Guide for more information on AIS threats to the District. Please see the document below for instructions about how to make your own zebra mussel sampler.
