The group, Wildlife Forever and Bent Paddle Brewing Co. teamed up to host the fundraising event at the Bent Paddle brewery, complete with fresh boiled crawfish, Jambalaya, sausage, corn, potatoes, and over $200 in prizes.

"There's just something about eating a delicious plateful of invasive species that leaves you feeling extra satisfied," says Dane Huinker, Conservation Program Manager for Wildlife Forever. "All are welcome to learn what you can do to prevent non-native crawfish and other harmful invaders from spreading to our favorite lakes and rivers."

The goal of the event was to engage the community, specifically kids to participate in an invasive species quiz where they could test their knowledge, along with the chance to win fun prizes. Proceeds from Saturday's fundraiser supports the Wildlife Forever's ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of invasive species.
