Knocking on the Great Lakes Door
An aquatic invasive species that was first found in North America in the 1940’s, Eurasian watermilfoil has spread to almost every state, where it grows into thick mats that can make lakes impenetrable for boats and swimmers. Milfoil can make it impossible for native plants to grow, affecting fish and wildlife.

A study conducted this year for The Nature Conservancy found that aquatic invasive species cost the Great Lakes region significantly more than $100 million a year. Lake County, Ill., has 260 lakes and 75% of them have invasive species.

Of those species, 29 are threats to the Mississippi River basin.
