“The Importance of Early Detection,” an Invasive Species workshop on imminent invaders takes place on Friday, May 2 from 3 -4:30 pm at the Bailey’s Harbor Town Hall.
You can already spot Garlic Mustard …and Phragmites? Everyone knows Phragmites! But what about the newcomers? What about those impending threats, the ones that plant biologists call the early detection invasive species? They are the space invaders that have yet to arrive here in Northeastern Wisconsin or perhaps have started to appear in very small colony patches in Door County.
Prevention and eradication of what biologists call satellite populations, is the easiest to control these early invaders and the least costly.
Join The Ridges Sanctuary and the Door County Invasive Species Team (DCIST) as they host Anthony Summers, Program Coordinator with the Wisconsin First Detector Network who will explain how to identify early detection invasive plants. Anthony will give a hands-on workshop demonstrating the latest online resources like the Great Lakes Early Detection Network (GLEDN) and provide instruction on techno-tools like how to map invasive species using your smartphone.
This workshop is for the unyielding hikers, explorers, natural area stewards and volunteer botanists. Advanced registration is not required for the workshop. Just drop in. If you have further questions, please contact The Ridges at 920.839.2802 or DCIST at 920.746.5955.
