Abstract: Risk-based prioritization for early detection monitoring is of utmost importance to prevent and mitigate invasive species impacts and is especially needed for large ecosystems where management resources are not sufficient to survey all locations susceptible to invasion.
This document details the method used to develop the Great Lakes Surveillance Framework Watch List.
This update to the 2003 Wisconsin AIS Management Plan is intended to guide the implementation of prevention, containment and control activities directed at the seven pathways identified as most responsible for the introduction and movement of AIS around the state.
Invasive plants, animals and pests are taking a toll on Wisconsin's lakes, rivers and landscapes. The Department of Natural Resources is working with citizens and partners to slow the spread of invasive species. Through educational outreach, strategic planning and active management we are protecting our environment and economy from invasives.
With the growing concern over the spread of aquatic invasive species to Wisconsin’s inland lakes, many lake association members and other concerned citizens are looking for ways to get involved. The Clean Boats, Clean Waters watercraft inspection program is an opportunity to take a front line defense against the spread of aquatic invasive species.
This risk assessment report was conducted to define the priority pathways through which aquatic plant species may move throughout the Great Lakes region and identify gaps in knowledge, management, compliance and law enforcement, and education for these pathways. The results of this risk assessment are intended to guide future activities that may reduce the risk of introduction of aquatic plants into waterways across the Great Lakes region.
This strategy brings together diverse nutrient management activities for point sources and nonpoint sources across the state. It documents the progress of ongoing activities implemented by federal, state, or local agencies and identifies outstanding needs.
The Wisconsin Nitrate Demonstrate Project provides a progress report on its collaborative efforts and outlines next steps for the collaborative.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources provides an overview of their source water protection program, including wellhead protection information, and links to community source water assessments.

The Wisconsin DNR's Surface Water Data Viewer (SWDV) is an interactive map that displays primarily statewide water-related data.
The Wisconsin Wildlife Action Plan (WWAP) is the comprehensive resource for the conservation of rare and declining species and their habitats in Wisconsin. The overall mission of state wildlife action plans such as this one is to identify Species of Greatest Conservation Need and their habitat and describe conservation actions to respond to the issues and threats that affect them.
These master plans establish the level and type of public uses permitted, detail the authorized resource management and the facility development, and act as a property blueprint for Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource lands. Master plans are available for most WDNR properties. Plans are designed to support state-owned property management, but are available for reference to interested stakeholders.
