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 organizations, agencies and homeowners 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 include: common and glossy buckthorn, invasive honeysuckles, multiflora rose, black locust, burning bush, oriental bittersweet, garlic mustard, dame’s rocket, autumn olive, hairy willow herb, wild chervil, lesser celandine, giant hogweed, lyme grass, baby’s breath, yellow iris, purple loosestrife, burdock, java water dropwort, reed mannagrass, common reed grass and Japanese knotweed, barberry and hedge parsley.
