  • Ricefield Bulrush Removal Work Parties - Ridgefield NWR

    June 29 through September 3, every Wednesday and Saturday
    Elk

    Come spend some time outside at the scenic Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge and help us eradicate an invasive wetland plant- ricefield bulrush. Ricefield bulrush came to the Refuge accidentally in 1999 as an unknown plant in a seed mix that was intended to restore and improve wildlife habitat. It is an invasive species that degrades habitat for native wildlife, and we have been managing it since 2002. We are making progress, though there is still much work to meet our eradication goals. Your help makes a difference!
