Minnesota Sea Grant (MNSG) Extension Program Leader and Fisheries and Aquaculture Extension Educator Amy Schrank will give a presentation on her Invasive Cattail-Dominated Shorelines project, which seeks to determine if small-scale removal of invasive, hybrid cattails can improve abundance and diversity of plants and fish on Minnesota lakeshores.

Amy's presentation will be part of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Minnesota Outdoor Skills and Stewardship Series. This series features live webinars each week where participants can learn about various Minnesota summer outdoor activities. Upcoming webinars are scheduled every Wednesday at noon through August 2023.
