A Herculean Task: Containing the First Hydrilla Infestation in Michigan

2024-05-21T13:00:00Z 2024-05-21T14:00:00Z A Herculean Task: Containing the First Hydrilla Infestation in Michigan

The mythic Hydra was a water serpent that sprouted two heads for every one cut off. In a similar fashion, hydrilla - said to be the most invasive aquatic plant in the world - can grow new plants from stem fragments, making it a formidable challenge to control. That challenge now faces Michigan, where hydrilla was recently detected for the first time. Join Billy Keiper from EGLE Water Resources Division to find out why hydrilla is such a threat, how the Michigan Invasive Species Program is working to eradicate it, and what you can do to help identify and report it.


After registering, you will receive an email from "EGLE Outreach" with a link for you to use to join the webinar.

Individuals needing language assistance or accommodations for effective participation should contact Joel Roseberry, roseberryj@michigan.gov by May 7 to request language, mobility, visual, hearing, translation, and/or other assistance.
