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 youth and adults 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 environmental education and a sustainable invasives program at the same time that you help to reduce garlic mustard seed production in 2016.
2016 Pull-A-Thon Teams are currently forming throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

The 2016 Upper Midwest Invasive Species Conference (UMISC) will be held in scenic La Crosse, Wisconsin on October 17-19, 2016 to exchange information on all invasive aquatic and terrestrial plant, animal, insect and pathogen species.
The goal of UMISC is to strengthen management of invasive species, especially prevention, control, and containment. Invasive species research, prevention, and management has seen great strides but much work still must be done. As the 2016 UMISC theme says, sharing innovative and practical solutions are the key to stopping the spread of invasive species in the Midwest and beyond.
