is a broad-based coalition that promotes efficient and effective management of invasive species throughout Kenosha, Ozaukee, Milwaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha Counties.
Our Garlic Mustard Pull-A-Thon is an annual fundraiser event, where we encourage folks throughout southeastern Wisconsin to protect the woodlands of their neighborhoods by pulling this invasive plant. This year, our goal is to collectively pull 5,000 pounds and raise essential funds for the fight against invasive species!
The pull-a-thon is a competition, a fundraiser, and a way for people to join together and have a positive impact on their environment. Our natural areas will only avoid damage from invasives with a long-term sustained commitment to invasives control. Help raise funds for a sustainable invasives program at the same time that you help to reduce garlic mustard seed production in 2015.
2015 Pull-A-Thon Teams are currently forming throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
Our 7th Annual Education Symposium was a tremendous success. This year’s guest speakers, Joey Zocher and Brian Russart, engaged the audience in an informative discussion regarding the importance and process of creating community-inclusive land stewardship opportunities while highlighting successes in the field of invasive management and environmental justice. Symposium attendees celebrated this year’s Sweat Equity Award Winner, Ben Arnold from Ozaukee County. Everyone enjoyed local food refreshments curtesy of Collectivo and the Student Conservation Association.
Mark your calendars for the 8th Annual Education Symposium: November 18, 2015!
On September 17, 2014 another meeting of the minds took place at Johnson’s Nursery with Where Ecology Meets Economy— Season 2.
It was the second educational get-together between the Green Industry and the Conservation communities in the past two years. The two groups are not totally exclusive of each other. They are far from it and seem to be more and more of a mixture each year.
Johnson’s Nursery, Inc.™ and SEWISC co-hosted the event and could not have done it without the support of 27 sponsors and the 132 people who attended. We plan to have another event next year and hope you can attend.
