Jim Reinartz, former director of the UWM Field Station at Cedarburg Bog will present:  “So You’ve Killed the Buckthorn and Garlic Mustard:  Now What?”  When we remove invasive species from woodlands that they dominate, the area will almost certainly be re-colonized by invasives if nothing else is introduced to fill that space.  Is it effective to seed native species into degraded woodlands where invasive plants have been removed?  If so, what native species will be most effective at establishing and competing with the non-natives?  We do not have all the answers yet, but we can all actively experiment with this topic.

Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants
Ecological restoration can be understood as an act of reciprocity, in return for the gifts of the earth. This talk explores the ecological and ethical imperatives of healing the damage we have inflicted on our land and waters. We trace the evolution of restoration philosophy and practice and consider how integration of indigenous knowledge can expand our understanding of restoration from the biophysical to the biocultural. Reciprocal restoration includes not only healing the land but our relationship to land. In healing the land, we are healing ourselves.

Wild Ones is excited to cohost this event with the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh's Earth Week 2024 and the Wild Ones Fox Valley Chapter.
