We have begun a project to remove the large stand of invasive Glossy Buckthorn that surrounds the fen at Haehnle Sanctuary. Under a program managed by the US Fish & Wildlife Service, equipment has been brought on site to start the eradication of an old stand of buckthrons. Tom Eitniear of the USF&WS has brought in Dennis Marshall to mow down these invasives. They will work on this another few days this year, but only a portion of the stand will be removed this year. This project will continue for the next several years. For videos, see our JAS YouTube feed.
