Horicon Marsh Methods for Supple Marsh?

Event Type: NonProfit
Date: 5/2/2018
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 Cattails and reeds are integral to marshland beauty, but some of those species actually are invasive, creating an unfriendly habitat to native plants and animals. Paul Samerdyke, wildlife biologist for Dodge County, will explain what the DNR is doing in Horicon Marsh to reduce invasive reeds (also known as phragmites) and cattails without destroying the native species. He'll discuss how those methods might be used in FDL's Supple Marsh. The invasives can grow so dense that they choke out native plants and reduce wildlife habitat.

The program is presented by the City of Fond du Lac, Clean Waters Project, Lake Winnebago Quality Improvement Association of Fond du Lac County and ParkWatch of Fond du Lac. For more information about the Lake Winnebago group, visit www.lwqia.org.
