Douglas County Conservation invites citizens to a volunteer activity to explore Clough Island in the St. Louis River Estuary. This volunteer opportunity involves traveling to the island by boat (bring your own or access a free program canoe) and spending a half-day hand-pulling small invasive buckthorn plants in support of a major habitat restoration effort.

The events will take place Oct. 5 and 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Please reach out to Zach Stewart, Douglas County invasive species coordinator, at zach.stewart@douglascountywi.org if you are interested or if you have questions about registration.

One meeting is on the calendar for next week: The Administration Committee Budget Meeting takes place Thursday, Sept. 22, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. in Room 201 of the Government Center.

Make it a great week!
