Ozaukee Washington Land Trust

2016 Great Lakes Ecosystem Based Invasive Plant Monitoring Workshop

Ville du Parc

Another Milwaukee River success story - Recently OWLT helped the City of Mequon protect 142 acres of open space and 3,300 feet of Milwaukee River frontage in perpetuity. Don't miss  your chance to explore the new property and help us find out what invasive species threaten the native communities that thrive there. We will meet at Rotary Pavilion for a morning educational session, then caravan over to the site and hit the field! The session will feature hands-on training covering invasive species identification and mapping using the Great Lakes Early Detection (GLEDN) mobile application. Buckthorn, Japanese Barberry and Japanese knotweed will be the focus invasive species of the day. Educational materials will be provided.

September 10, Saturday 10 am- 2 pm
Buckthorn, Japanese Barberry and Japanese knotweed
Meet at Rotary Pavilion:  4100 W. Highland Road, Mequon, WI, 53092 (Map)
