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 20 agencies and organizations and their eager volunteers through funding from EPA/USFS Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, We Energies Foundation and Wisconsin Department Of Natural Resources. Invasive species controlled and managed through these efforts included: common buckthorn, invasive honeysuckles, purple loosestrife, Japanese knotweed, garlic mustard, dame’s rocket, teasel, autumn olive, Eurasian watermilfoil, wild chervil, lesser celandine and common reed grass. Check our website for 2016 Assistance Funding application details in early January.
