Walworth County Seeking Volunteers to Help with Invasive Plant Removal

(Walworth County submission) Walworth County Public Works is seeking volunteers to help with the removal of invasive plant species at County parks.

On Friday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to noon, volunteers will assist the Lake Geneva Conservancy and Walworth County Public Works with the removal of buckthorn and other invasive species at White River County Park, 6503 Sheridan Springs Rd. in Lake Geneva.

Volunteers can also pitch in on May 8 at Natureland Park in Whitewater. Efforts will again focus on the removal of invasive plant species.

Those interested in volunteering should contact Walworth County Volunteer Services Coordinator Colleen Lesniak at (262) 741-4223, clesniak@co.walworth.wi.us.

For anyone interested in learning about groundwater-fed wetlands, the Kettle Moraine Land Trust (KMLT) is hosting a Seeps, Springs, and Fen Wetlands educational workshop on May 8 at Natureland Park. KMLT’s Greg Rajsky will describe various wetland types, explore wetland functions, and introduce attendees to some of the special species that inhabit the wetlands at Natureland Park. Contact rachel@kmlandtrust.org to register.
