Education and Outreach is one of many tools used to help prevent and limit the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species. Often phrases such as "Clean, Drain, Dry" and "Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers" are used during these efforts. Le Sueur County actively participates with education and outreach efforts such as speaking at lake association meetings/nonprofit banquets, attending the County fair, AIS classes for public schools, TV advertisements, posting signs at county parks/accesses, and handing out items (bobbers, stickers, coasters, rapalas, bait bags, etc.) with messaging about preventing and limiting the spread of AIS!

In previous years, Climb Theatre has attended Le Sueur County schools to present a class all about Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS). This year Le Sueur County partnered with Climb Theatre to develop an online AIS education class for public schools. Students, school staff, and parents can also take a survey and provide feedback about the class. This class has offered a unique and diverse way for Le Sueur County students to learn about AIS.
