Back by popular demand

Many residents and land managers in southeastern Wisconsin search for effective and efficient practices to control exotic invasive plants in our natural areas. So, SEWISC is teaming with Johnson’s Nursery, Inc.TM to offer our Invasive Plant Management Workshops twice annually. Take this class to ensure that you are using the most appropriate, efficient, up-to-date, and least environmentally damaging methods in those efforts.


Spring/Summer Workshop

9:00 am to 5:00 pm


Retzer Nature Center

S14 W28167 Madison St, Waukesha, WI 53188

Instructor: Dr. James Reinartz


Workshop fee: $60.00

This is a hands-on class. After an introduction to the general ecology of the five functional groups of invasive plants (shrubs, perennial forbs, clonal perennials, grasses, annuals/biennials), we will discuss, demonstrate and practice all applicable control methods (chemical and non-chemical) for these plant types and suggest native plantings after invasive removal. Workshop class size is limited and classes fill fast, so mark your calendar! Registration for the June 11 workshop will open on May 9, 2022.
