The Three River Rapid Responders and Early Detection Team received a Carol Mortensen Invasive Species Management Award from the Minnesota Invasive Species Advisory Council (MISAC) at the Upper Midwest Invasive Species Conference.
"The award for Team Achievement went to the Rapid Responders and Early Detection Team (RRED). The RRED team is a dedicated, passionate group of volunteers who have augmented efforts to combat invasive species threats in Three Rivers Park District. The team combines surveillance with quick action and have provided between 1,000–2,000 volunteer service hours every year since 2014. Team members are passionate about raising awareness about invasive species and assist Three Rivers Park District with invasive species education, identification training, and control projects."
