Volunteers help with restoration of La Crosse marsh

Volunteers stepped up Monday to help get rid of some invasive species from the Myrick Marsh.   

Fifteen employees from LHI offered to help try to rid the western portion of the marsh from Buckthorn that has choked out other native plants.   

Forest management for the city say these restoration efforts need volunteers to get it done. 

“I want you to call Parks and Rec and say I really like the work you are doing. I want to see more of it and if that happens, then the program can really get bigger,” said Forest Management Coordinator Sunshine Love.

Saturday, November 19th is the next big work day if you’d like to get involved.

They will be restoring trails in Hixon Forest. Just call Sunshine Love at  608-789-7309 to find out more.
