Seek solutions for challenges facing our land and water at the Northern Green Expo. Over 300 exhibitors and 5000 visitors are expected to participate, including Minnesota Sea Grant staff who will be explaining how to live with a dash of HabitattitudeTM. Habitattitude logo

Habitattitude is an attitude embraced by aquarium hobbyists, backyard pond owners, water gardeners - even teachers and students - committed to preventing the release of unwanted pets and potentially invasive non-native plants into the environment. Habitattitude supporters share information about the recreational, ecological and economic consequences of release or escape of aquatic invasive species. Especially, they encourage people to find alternatives to releasing fish, reptiles, plants, and snails to our lakes, rivers, ponds and wetlands:

  • Contact a retailer for proper handling or for possible returns
  • Give or trade with another aquarist, pond owner or water gardener
  • Donate to a local aquarium society, school or aquatic business
  • Contact a veterinarian or pet retailer for humane disposal guidance

What about those aquatic plants?

  • Build water gardens away from other waters
  • Inspect plant orders and remove seeds, other plant fragments, snails and fish
  • Seal aquatic plants in plastic bags and dispose in the trash

The Northern Green Expo is hosted by the Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association, and the Minnesota Turf & Grounds Foundation.
