2016 Great Lakes Ecosystem Based Invasive Plant Monitoring Workshop

The Ozaukee Washington Land Trust and the UW-Extension are co-hosting a Great Lakes Ecosystem-based Invasive Plant Monitoring Workshop!

Invasive plants threaten the health of the Great Lakes Ecosystem and the native communities that thrive there. Learn how to identify and map invasive plant populations through the Great Lakes Early Detection (GLEDN) mobile application. Hands-on training will be provided by Wisconsin Experts. Three workshops will be offered at Ozaukee Washington Land Trust properties. All ages welcome!
