Volunteer Opportunity at Greenbush Kettle Prairie

The Friends of the Kettle Moraine State Forest - Northern Unit will be working on removing invasive plants in the Greenbush Kettle Prairie on Saturdays July 15th & July 22nd from 8 AM - 11 AM.

 

Volunteers will be pulling out sweet clover, Queen Anne's lace, spotted knapweed, black medic, and poison parsnip. The KMSF-NU Friends Group's annual volunteer work days go a long way towards the annual maintenance required to remove invasive plants from important habitats in the Kettle Moraine and allow native plants to flourish.  If you plan to join, please call Connie Ramthun at 920-533-8939 so she knows to expect you. 

Volunteers need to wear long pants, long sleeves, a hat and work gloves and bring drinking water. Knee pads are recommended if you have them and want to be more comfortable pulling plants. 

To get to the Greenbush Kettle parking area from the south, take the Scenic Drive from Highway 67 North to the first stop sign, then turn left and park in the lot on the left.  To get there from the north, take County T out of Greenbush to the Scenic Drive and drive past the ski area to the parking lot which is almost straight ahead on a curve. There are large rocks circling the parking lot. You can use N5394 Kettle Moraine Dr, Plymouth, WI 53073 as the address for the parking lot in your GPS to navigate there as well. 

 

The group will meet at the parking lot by Greenbush Kettle at 8 am.  There will be a red flag where the trail starts.  It takes about 5 minutes to get from the parking lot to the prairie remnant. If you have any questions or need directions, you can reach out to Connie.
