Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium (SEWISC) Invasive Survey

The Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium (SEWISC) is planning a large-scale survey throughout Sheboygan, Washington, Ozaukee, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha and Walworth counties this spring and summer and needs volunteer survey crews.  SEWISC will be looking for common and cut-leaved teasel, common reed and Japanese knotweed.

SEWISC needs at least two volunteers for each township. It is estimated that the survey work will take six to 12 hours and can be done over multiple days between May 14 and July 24. We especially need volunteers for Walworth County.

Volunteers don’t have to be plant experts.  Two-hour training sessions will be offered for crew members on May 7 and May 14.
