Forest County Land & Water/Wild Rivers Invasive Species Coalition
Invasive Species Trade-Up Day Event Coming to Crandon
The Wild Rivers Invasive Species Coalition (WRISC), in partnership with Forest County Land and Water Conservation Division, is hosting an Invasive Species Trade-Up Day event in Crandon, WI on June 2nd from 9 AM until 4 PM at the Forest County Courthouse (by the Tank).
Trade-Up Days are an opportunity for landowners to remove an invasive shrub from their property, such as Japanese Barberry, Buckthorn, Exotic Honeysuckles, or Burning Bush, and exchange the plant for a native one from the Forest County Conservation Native Plant Sale. Landowners can also receive a monetary voucher to buy a native plant replacement at next year’s plant sale. Each voucher is worth $5, and you are able to receive up to $50 if you bring in 10 or more invasive species! Likewise, you can receive up to 10 plants!
For specific details, visit our event’s page at www.wrisc.org/events. We encourage you to pre-register, but it is not required! Thank you for doing your part to stop the spread of invasive species!
The Wild Rivers Invasive Species Coalition (WRISC), a multi-partner organization representing five counties in two states, is dedicated to managing invasive species on our lands and waters through cooperation, education, prevention, and control.
