Pull Japanese Hedge Parsley at Hemlock Draw


Join this work party with volunteers from The Nature Conservancy to help control Japanese Hedge Parsley in the Hemlock Draw Preserve. Volunteer work days in the Baraboo Hills help maintain and protect the natural beauty of Wisconsin and its native species. Without the hard work of volunteers, the non-native Japanese Hedge Parsley plant will continue to spread and threaten our forest ecosystem.

Meet in Leland at 9:00 (directions below) and we’ll head out in search of JHP from there. We usually eat lunch/snacks together before heading back home.

Work Party Leader: Sherren Clark at 608-225-2974 or sclark99@outlook.com

What to Bring: Dress for the weather and wear long pants, work gloves, and clothes that can get dirty if you have them. Please bring water. We'll provide the necessary tools.

Directions: Take Highway 12 north from Madison or south from Baraboo. Go west on County Highway C (across from the former Badger Army Ammunition Plant) for about nine miles, past Natural Bridge State Park, into the village of Leland. We will meet at the gravel parking lot next to the park and mill pond, then we will drive to the work sites from there.
