SEWISC programs and projects
We strive to provide resources for on-the-ground control of invasive species and establishment of native communities in Southeastern Wisconsin. This year, SEWISC had the opportunity to assist organizations, agencies, and homeowners through programs funded by US Forest Service Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, We Energies Foundation and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Invasive species mapped, controlled and managed through these efforts include invasive buckthorns and honeysuckles, dame’s rocket, garlic mustard, multi-flora rose, oriental bittersweet, wild parsnip, cut-leaved and common teasel, reed canary grass, autumn olive, hairy willow herb, wild chervil, purple loosestrife, crown vetch, reed mana grass, Japanese knotweed, Japanese tree lilac, flowering rush, Siberian elm, yellow iris, Japanese barberry, callery pear and more!
