LINK: Invasive Species in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin DNR has developed a comprehensive website with information on invasive species including aquatic, terrestrial, and wetland invasives.  The website also features up-to-date information on regulations and requirements for invasive species in the state.

LINK: Online Invasive Plant Identification Tool

This tool helps you identify plants based on simple characteristics such as flower color, leaf shape, and site conditions.  Developed by the Renz lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Agronomy Department and UW-Extension.

LINK: Videos to Identify Invasive Plants

The Renz lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Agronomy Department and UW-Extension developed a series of 18 videos, each one covering a different invasive plant.  Each video is approximately 2-3 minutes long.

LINK: WI Native Plant Sources and Restoration Consultants

This is a list of nurseries and consultants in the state who can help make your natural landscaping plan a reality.  This list includes companies in Wisconsin and nearby in neighboring states.  The list is compiled and updated by the Wisconsin DNR.

VIDEO: "Little Things Big Problems"

This 7-minute video explains how invasive species, specifically spotted knapweed, have directly impacted the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and other national parks on the Great Lakes.  It was sponsored by the National Park Service.  Watch for a cameo appearance by several NCWMA members!
