New invaders headed our way
Our 8th Annual Education Symposium was another great success. This year’s guest speakers, Chris Evans and Kurt Dreisilker, shared examples of problematic invasive species which are invading the counties just south of our region. Early detection, identification and prompt best management techniques will keep these traveling aggressors from establishing in Wisconsin. Symposium attendees enjoyed local food refreshments courtesy of Colectivo and the Student Conservation Association and also celebrated this year’s Sweat Equity Award Winner, Brian Russart, who works tirelessly to protect the natural areas of our Milwaukee County Park system. Mark your calendars for the 9th Annual Education Symposium: November 16, 2016.
