Empowering Door County citizens and local municipalities with the education, tools, and skills to tackle invasive species.
DCIST honored Jo Wahlen with our first annual Volunteer of the Year Award on October 23, 2018 at the Jacksonport Town Board meeting. Jo has been instrumental in fighting Phragmites in Jacksonport and across Door County for nearly a decade. She has helped advance the DCIST mission by rallying volunteers, petitioning Town Boards to adopt noxious weed ordinances, coordinating the treatment of Phragmites in Jacksonport, and mapping the invasive grass on her own shoreline.

An Invasive Species strategic plan was created by DCIST and the Door County SWCD and approved by the Door County Land Conservation Committee (LCC) in September 2018. The Plan outlines initiatives, strategies, and actions to achieve the mission of DCIST over the next five years.
