FWCF buoys the local actions of engaged citizens with technical, administrative and partnership support - Can we help you take action to protect the waters of Minnesota that you love?.

Stop Starry Project

The Stop Starry project will take direct action to stop the spread of Starry Stonewort, a highly destructive aquatic invasive species BEFORE it is spread widely in Minnesota by placing boat cleaning stations at every boat ramp on the 14 lakes currently infested with starry stonewort.

Our solution is simple. Provide the tools people need to do the right thing at the places they need them - on the boat ramps. Leverage targeted community education and support to increase user rates. Augment with ramp improvements that are shown to further increase the use of the equipment and subsequent reduction in the risk of AIS spread.

Your contribution to this effort will demonstrate local support as FWCF goes out to other funding sources including foundations, state government and corporations.
