PULLING TOGETHER through some friendly competition
Our Garlic Mustard Pull-A-Thon is an annual fundraising event, where we encourage folks throughout southeastern Wisconsin to protect the woodlands of their neighborhoods by pulling this invasive plant. Our 2015 goal is to collectively pull 5,000 pounds and raise essential funds for the fight against invasive species – so join us!
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.
All proceeds will be used for invasive species education, prevention and control in southeastern Wisconsin and contributions are tax-deductible. The Pull-A-Thon Traveling Trophy and bragging rights will be awarded to the team with the most bags of pulled garlic mustard by June 30, 2015.
• Promote repeated control and proper disposal of garlic mustard and dame’s rocket in our parks and natural areas.
• Promote public awareness of invasive species issues.
• Share control methods and best management practices with land owners and managers and strengthen local volunteer efforts.
• Raise operational funds for SEWISC and our partner organizations.
