SEWISC Assistance Program
We strive to provide resources for control of invasive species and establishment of native communities in Southeastern Wisconsin. This year, SEWISC had the opportunity to assist more than 125 agencies and organizations and their eager volunteers through EPA/USFS Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding and a contribution from We Energies Foundation. Controlled species included: European buckthorn, Asian honeysuckle, Japanese barberry, reed canary grass, purple loosestrife, Japanese knotweed, garlic mustard, dame’s rocket, crown vetch, thistle, teasel, burdock, Eurasian watermilfoil and common reed grass. Check our website for 2015 Assistance Funding details in early January.
