annual education symposium

Celebrate our recent accomplishments and learn about our plans for 2024 and beyond. This year’s guest speaker, Jim Reinartz, will also discuss strategies for achieving a desirable native plant community after controlling invasive plants. This informative symposium is free and open to the public.

Our Annual Sweat Equity Award will also be presented during the Symposium. The award honors outstanding southeast Wisconsin citizens and organizations for their significant contributions to prevent, control, or eradicate invasive species that harm our region’s lands, waters, and wetlands. Please consider nominating adults and/or youth with whom you work or those from your community. Sweat Equity Award nomination forms are accepted through October 10.
