The Green Bay West Shores State Wildlife Area is comprised of more than 10 management units across 9,000 acres. Come explore some of the “cherry-picked” units chosen to showcase responses to invasive species challenges, reinforcing the importance of cross-disciplinary action! In 2021, European frogbit (EFB, Hydrocharis morsus-ranae) was discovered in the Wildlife Area. We’ll visit the EFB site and learn about the multi-partner response to this Wisconsin Prohibited species. After drying off our feet, we’ll hike two forested areas where tree mortality from emerald ash borer (EAB, Agrilus planipennis) has spurred a new underplanting project. We’ll learn about the assessment and planning process for responding to ash mortality and plans for future management.

Leaders: Derek Thorn (FLOW: Florence Langlade Oconto Waterways) and Colleen Matula (WI DNR)
