New SEWISC Sign Salutes Individual Efforts
Even the smallest of efforts can make a big difference toward reducing the impact of invasive species. Urban landowners as well as those who own and manage larger acreages can now encourage good stewardship and backyard conservation practices by posting these signs.
Whether you have rural acreage, a suburban yard, or a city lot, you can help protect the environment by controlling invasive species and promoting that stewardship practice to others.
To order just download, complete, print and send a SEWISC Sign Order Form with your payment. Supplies are limited!
10th Annual Symposium
Nasty Aquatic Plant & Animal Species: Got ‘em? Get ‘em!
As usual, our 10th Annual Education Symposium was informative and fun! This year’s guest speakers, Paul Skawinski and Brad Steckart, shared information regarding exotic aquatic plant and animal species which are invading our region. Early detection, identification and prompt best management techniques will reduce the negative impacts of these unwelcomed invaders. Symposium attendees celebrated this year’s Sweat Equity Award Winner, Ruth Marshall who diligently strives to educate government officials and the public on invasive plant species issues. Everyone enjoyed local food refreshments and fifteen lucky raffle winners returned home with over $2,800 in donated prizes! Mark your calendars for the 11th Annual Education Symposium: November 14, 2018!
