County Comes Together for Invasive Species Challenge

On Oct. 12, 9 am – 12:30 pm, a forum will be held at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay for landowners and organizations interested in learning more about invasive species and the innovative ways to slow their spread in Door County. The forum is titled “Door County: Joining Together to Confront the Invasive Species Challenge.”

Members of the Door County Invasive Species Team and Door County landowners will share information about initiatives happening in Door County to combat invasive plants and animals. These initiatives include local ordinances, 50/50 grant and cost-share programs, volunteer resources and equipment loan program, invasive species control in right-of-ways, and more. There will also be time set aside to network with professionals and fellow landowners and share ideas on how to work together to combat invasive species.

Register in advance for this free event at A small donation of $10 is suggested on the day of the event. If you are a member of a local organization or volunteer group that would like space to share information (brochures/handouts) at the event, contact Kari Hagenow at [email protected]
