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.
The Friends of the Mukwonago River is dedicated to protecting the most diverse small river system in southern Wisconsin. The Mukwonago River watershed is home to over 50 species of fish including the threatened Longear Sunfish (Lepomis megalotis), several species of rare freshwater mussels, an incredible diversity of wetlands, and some of the highest water quality in Southeastern Wisconsin.
The mission of the Friends of the Mukwonago River is to protect the Mukwonago River and its associated watershed ecosystems by way of education, advocacy, and promotion of sound land use throughout the watershed. For more information, go to http://mukwonagoriver.org/ Workshops, volunteer events and educational opportunities are available throughout the year.
