The University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program hosted the first statewide meeting of Habitattitude supporters in January at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Held in conjunction with the 2013 Northern Green Expo, this inaugural coming together of sellers of aquarium and water garden plants and animals, agency staff, and educators restarted the conversation about ways to stop the spread of harmful non-native species through aquarium releases and water garden escapes. Habitattitude is a national campaign to eliminate the release and escape of pets and plants – from goldfish to hydrilla – into lakes and rivers. A $400,000 grant awarded to the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network, led by Minnesota, through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative rejuvenated the Habitattitude campaign. Following a string of other Great Lakes statewide conferences, the Minnesota Habitattitude meeting extended aquatic invasive species education across state and country borders.
