About the event

Swap that Invasive Shurb for a Native one!

The Wild Rivers Invasive Species Coalition (WRISC), in partnership with the Marinette Land and Water Conservation Department, is hosting Invasive Species Trade-Up Days in Marinette from Monday, May 15th to Saturday, May 20th. Trade-Up Days are a chance for landowners to remove ornamental invasive species from their property, such as Japanese Barberry, Buckthorn, or Burning Bush, and exchange the plant for a monetary voucher to buy a native plant replacement. Each voucher is worth $5, and you are able to receive up to $50 if you bring in 10 or more invasive species!

During the event, times will vary as indicated below:

Monday, May 15th: 7 AM - 4 PM

Tuesday, May 16th - Thursday, May 19th: 8 AM - 4PM

Saturday, May 20th: 9 AM - 12 PM

While we ask that you pre-register, it is not required! A short presentation will be given on Monday, May 15th at noon inside the Marinette Resource Center to kick off the event! 

There will be signage at the event location. A trailer bed will be set up in the parking lot of the Marinette Resource Center to collect plants. If you drop off plants Monday to Friday, you will need to go into the Resource Center and up to the second floor to the Marinette Land and Water Conservation Dept to receive your voucher. WRISC Staff will be outside on Saturday to hand out vouchers. 

Vouchers are redeemable at participating greenhouses and plant sales for the purchase of a native plant. Customers are responsible for any price difference. This year, we have an exciting list of native plant sellers! If you are looking for a specific native plant, call ahead, as some locations only sell perennials.
