To promote invasive and/or rare plant monitoring, the Kickapoo Valley Reserve is offering five plant identification hikes over the course of the summer. For each date, the hike will meet at the south gate of Old Hwy 131 Trail at 9 am and will walk north on Old 131, observing and identifying plants. Using the same route we will see the different growth stages of the same plants, while watching for the next flower to bloom.Topics such as native vs non-native, invasive vs aggressive, control methods ofinvasive plants, comparisons with other plants, and/or propagating nativeplants might be also discussed.

The hikes are free, with the understanding the attendee agrees to consider participating in rare and/or invasive plant monitoring in the future (additional training required). Registration is not required (KVR Trail pass is requested), but an email indicating attendance is appreciated a day or two in advance. Questions, thoughts, concerns contact Ben.Johnston@wisconsin.gov or the KVR Office 608 625 2960.

List of hiking dates: June 15, August 3, September 14, and October 12
