The quarterly electronic newsletter of the
Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium
Outpost Natural Foods Cooperative is committed to supporting and building strong partnerships with local like-minded organizations. This has been accomplished through its Community Partners give-back program for more than 20 years.
We are proud to announce that SEWISC has been chosen as one of Outpost's 2017 partners! Every year four locally-based non-profit organizations partner with Outpost to build greater community awareness of each organization’s mission as well as to raise funds to support their work. Building strong community partnerships is a key part of what Outpost does as an organization.
In an ideal world, public investment in control and management of invasive species would be proportional to the economic and environmental cost of invasive species. However in the real world, much of the work of minimizing the impact of invasive species is accomplished by non-profit volunteer-based groups like SEWISC. Outpost applauds this effort and recognizes that SEWISC’s mission and vision coincides with Outpost’s mission of creating a healthy, diverse, and sustainable community.
Special events to highlight SEWISC's partnership with Outpost during the months of April, May and June include SEWISC educational visits to Outpost locations in Wauwatosa, Milwaukee and Bay View. Two presentations on invasive species in our region and ways to manage them are scheduled in Mequon and Milwaukee. Stop in to your favorite location and pick up our brochure.
