The Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Board (LWSRB) met in Muscoda on March 9 to conduct a regular monthly business meeting.
Nate Fayram, Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Ecologist, provided information on activities related to the numerous State Natural Areas in the Riverway.
Fayram described efforts to combat invasive species such as spotted knapweed, sweet clover, garlic mustard and purple loosestrife as well as dozens of acres of black locust control. He said fire is an important tool in battling invasive species as well as restoring and maintaining native plant communities.
