What’s so invasive about that plant?

When you visit the CREW lands you’ll come across invasive plant species, and whether you’re aware of them or not, they’re there!

Wet Walk 101

Walk the seasonally wet trails of CREW for an education in watersheds! Join our education coordinator, Julie Motkowicz on any of the four upcoming Wet Walks – each at a different trail location.
