About the Event
Got Buckthorn? Garlic Mustard? Wild Parsnip? Or maybe another invasive species? Or perhaps you're not sure on what you have on your land but are curious to learn before those invasives invade and hinder native plant growth? This event is for you.
Come join our WiWiC community to learn together and gather ideas and information for how to best manage our land to create a healthy, diverse ecosystem by keeping invasives in check. Connect with other area women landowners and learn about resources with NRCS.
