Monitoring

  • Volunteer Milfoil Monitoring and Removal Form can be found here.

    • Instructions for completing the form

    • Your volunteer hours count as in-kind donation towards the DNR grant requirements as does the use of your personal motorized boat or non-motorized boat while performing monitoring and removal of EWM.  There is no need to calculate the dollar value of your in-kind donated work/equipment use.  The district will tally up the totals before it submits the grant reimbursement requests.  Simply report the hours, locations, and other useful information requested on the form.
