The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes is taking aim at invasive species.

The CSKT Natural Resources Department has set up a technical team of scientists and managers to focus primarily on the potential risk of aquatic invasive species in Flathead Lake.

The team plans on providing public education and sharing information about the potential risk of AIS in the water bodies of the Flathead Reservation.

The AIS Technical Team has scheduled two community meetings in order to help anglers and boaters enhance their understanding of the recent findings of mussels -- and the risk they pose to Flathead Lake.

The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 2 at the Johnny Arlee and Victor Charlo Theater on the Salish Kootenai College campus starting at 6 p.m. A second meeting will be held one week later at the KwaTaqNuk Resort in Polson, also starting at 6 p.m.
