Event description

Description

Invasive plants pose a threat to our favorite outdoor spaces. Although it can seem like an overwhelming problem to tackle, one easy way for anyone to help is to learn how to identify invasive plants in our part of the state.

This year, St. Croix-Red Cedar Cooperative Weed Management Area is teaming up with Wisconsin First Detector Network to provide citizen science workshops for local volunteers, landowners, and land managers!

Attendees will learn how to identify common and priority invasive plants in northwestern Wisconsin and how to use the Great Lakes Early Detection Network (GLEDN) app to help map infestations. A portion of the morning will be spent outside at the Nature Center to practice invasive plant identification and to map invasive plants throughout Willow River State Park.

Attendees will leave with new knowledge of plants to look for and tools for mapping invasive plants. St. Croix-Red Cedar CWMA representatives will also share opportunities for attendees to help with invasive plant mapping efforts in priority areas within their 5-county region (Barron, Burnett, Polk, St. Croix, Washburn).

When: Friday, May 1st, 10AM-12:30PM

Where: Willow River State Park Nature Center, 1034 Co Hwy A, Hudson, WI 54016

This event is FREE. Registration is required. Food will be provided.
