Invasive species coalition to meet June 7 in IM

IRON MOUNTAIN — The Wild Rivers Invasive Species Coalition will host its annual partner meeting in Iron Mountain on Wednesday, June 7.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Iron Mountain City Park’s main lodge. The event, which is being held in Iron Mountain for the first time, is open to the public and community organizations across the region.

The meeting is an opportunity for WRISC partners and community members to come together to celebrate WRISC’s milestones, projects, and learn what’s in store for the future. There will be morning brunch for attendees, followed by expert presentations on pressing invasive species topics, a short WRISC Board of Directors meeting, and a guided nature walk through City Park to teach invasive species identification and surveying.

Brunch tickets are $5 for WRISC partners and $7 for general attendees. You do not need to purchase a brunch ticket to attend the event. If you are not a formal WRISC partner, this is a great opportunity to learn how to become one.

Registration is open on WRISC’s website at www.wrisc.org/events. The deadline to register is June 5.

For more information, please contact WRISC coordinator Lindsay Peterson at wildriverscwma@gmail.com or 906-774-1550

The Wild Rivers Invasive Species Coalition, a multi-partner organization representing five counties in two states, is dedicated to managing invasive species on our lands and waters through cooperation, education, prevention and control.
