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.

Our 9th Annual Education Symposium was a tremendous success. This year’s guest speakers, Bernie Williams and Dan Hirchert, shared information regarding exotic animal species which are invading our region. Early detection, identification and prompt best management techniques will reduce the negative impacts of these unwelcomed critters. Symposium attendees celebrated this year’s Sweat Equity Award Winner, Ken Solis who diligently protects our Milwaukee County Park Natural Areas. Everyone enjoyed local food refreshments and twelve lucky raffle winners returned home with nearly $1,400 in prizes!
Mark your calendars for the 10th Annual Education Symposium: November 15, 2016!
