About the event
Invasive species are one of the greatest threats to Door County’s biological diversity. On this hike through the Door County Land Trusts Oak Road Preserve, you’ll learn what invasive plants and animals are problematic to this managed landscape, and what tools practitioners use to replicate natural disturbances to sustain these prairies. This hike will cover prairie and invasive plant ID, tools homeowners can use to manage invasive populations and prairies, and gain an ecological insight to prairie ecology. This approximate 2-mile hike will include areas off-trail with uneven terrain and potentially lowland wet areas. Knee boots or waterproof hiking boots recommended. Suitable for ages 16 and up.
