AMERICORPS NCCC MAPLE 6 TEAM ASSISTS CWWP
August 2018 - The CWWP, along with the Waushara County Parks Department and the White River Flowage Lake Management District (Waushara County), were fortunate to be awarded a team of seven AmeriCorps NCCC volunteers. The Maple 6 team arrived on July 13 and departed on August 6. This hard working and enthusiastic team assisted with a variety of projects. In Waushara County, the team removed terrestrial and aquatic invasive plants at county parks and on the White River Flowage. While serving with the CWWP, they helped install weed barrier fabric and hand weeded windbreak and living snow fence sites around Central Wisconsin.
