Grants help Door County expand fight against invasive plants

The Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department is getting state help for a two-fold attack on aquatic invasive plant species.  The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources awarded a grant of just over $49,800 for a community education effort.  Door County Conservationist Krista Lutzke says that will help people better report invasives and use responsible boating practices.

 


The DNR also awarded Door County $45,780 to hire a pair of temporary full-time staffers to expand invasive control efforts.

 


Both aquatic invasive plant control efforts are scheduled to take place this summer.
