Conservation lesson for students in clearing invasive species


Some area students are taking part in a project to clear invasive species from Wausau parks.

Students from Wausau West and East High Schools and Lincoln Hills in Irma are involved.

They are removing Buckthorn and Honeysuckle plants from Riverside Park and Fern Island.

"The invasive plants choke out the native plants because they have no natural predators. We are doing this to preserve the parks so people can enjoy their beauty in the future," said Kaycie Stushek of the Golden Sands Resource Conservation & Development Council.

The conservation group has held this event for the past 7 years.
