Dane County Chapter – Land Stewardship: Clearing Invasives, Lodi Marsh

May 30 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

We are now in the “home stretch” of our Spring garlic mustard and other woodland invasives eradication campaign with well over 20 million plants or potential plants* destroyed so far.  On Sunday, May 30,  we’ll work at the Lodi Marsh State Wildlife Area.

We’ll need help with a variety of projects including:

  • herbiciding Dame’s Rocket that is spreading into the prairie meadows from the edge of Lodi-Springfield Road;
  • scanning and hand-pulling garlic mustard and Japanese Hedge Parsley on the slopes and top of Center Bluff;
  • herbiciding several young aspen clones in the upper prairie meadow on the southeastern flank of Center Bluff;
  • removing honeysuckle and other shrubs to widen the corridor to relocate the Ice Age Trail from the chronically wet area in the meadow east of Center Bluff — this project is one of several led by Mike Livesey to move the Trail to more sustainable locations in the wildlife area.

Please RSVP to confirm that you can help, to make sure we have enough equipment. Gary Werner 608-249-2421

Final information about where to meet will be shared with those who RSVP. Morning-only or all-day help is welcome.
