|Grant to help Vilas, Oneida counties manage right of way invasive species|
The Wisconsin Headwaters Invasive Partnership (WHIP), which provides invasive species services throughout Oneida and Vilas counties, was recently granted funding from the Lumberjack Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Council.
The grant will enable the hiring of a temporary employee to assist in the development of invasive species management plans for highway rights of way (ROW) in both counties.
Lumberjack RC&D funding previously awarded to WHIP enabled completion of a walking survey of priority invasive plants along all Oneida County highways in 2012. A similar survey, also funded by Lumberjack RC&D, will be completed in Vilas County this summer.Data from these surveys will be used by the Oneida and Vilas County Mapping Departments to generate ROW invasive species maps. The maps will be used in the ROW management
