Terrestrial Invasive Species

Many invasive exotic plants and animals (i.e. Emerald Ash Borer) have devastating impacts on our native plant communities, fish and wildlife habitat, agricultural yields, recreational opportunities, and ultimately, local economies.  Because these non-native species disperse widely across the landscape, it is advantageous to work cooperatively across jurisdictional boundaries towards prevention, management and control objectives.

The Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium (SEWISC) is a broad-based coalition that promotes efficient and effective management of invasive species throughout an eight-county region.
