 Alien species, also called exotic, non-native, or invasive species, are living things not found naturally in Voyageurs National Park. Become a CSI agent and assist ranger naturalist Lisa Maass in solving the case of alien invaders in Voyageurs National Park. As a detective, you will discover what alien invaders look like, where they live and the “crimes” they’ve committed. Find out how you can prevent future alien invasions!

Meet at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center on Sunday, March 20, 2011. The program runs from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is recommended for ages 10 and up.

This program is sponsored by Voyageurs National Park Association. No fee or registration is required to attend.

Visitors are encouraged to come early to browse through the museum, check out the winter displays in the interactive area, and go snowshoeing or skiing.
