DETROIT (AP) - Belle Isle wants to enlist the public in its fight against invasive species.

The Detroit island and newly minted Michigan state park this weekend has launched exhibits, talks, self-guided trails and other information aimed at sharing efforts to eradicate the invaders. The exhibits and activities are running at the Belle Isle’s aquarium and nature zoo.

Wayne State University says many of the exhibits at the Belle Isle Aquarium were designed by a group led by physiology professor Jeffrey Ram. He also serves as chairman of the aquarium’s Science and Education Advisory Board and conducts research on invasive species.

The exhibits are part of a project sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through its Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
