June is Invasive Species Awareness Month in Wisconsin. The goal is to make people aware of how they can help better control invasive in and around the Great Lakes.

June 23-25, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service representative Barry Mathews will visit the Wisconsin Maritime Museum to talk about invasive species, what it means to the ecology of the Great Lakes, and his involvement in the Sea Lamprey Management Program.

When sea lamprey entered the Great Lakes in the 1890s, they decimated native lake trout from Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and other federal, tribal and state partners are presently trying to restore lake trout in Lake Huron.
