Help keep invasive plants from spreading along the wild and scenic Gunflint Trail and into the Superior National Forest!

What makes a plant invasive? What happens native plant communities when invasives are introduced? All of these questions and more will be answered during this kick-off to Invasive Species Week at Chik Wauk Museum and Nature Center! We will compare areas where native species grow to the areas where invasive plants such as sweetclover and spotted knapweed have taken hold. Volunteers will lend a hand by removing white sweetclover from the Chik Wauk area.

This is a family friendly event! Lunch will be provided for volunteers. More details to be announced.
