The Door County Invasive Species Team (DCIST) is a group of natural resource professionals and interested public members that are concerned about the preservation of Door County's natural environment. DCIST seeks to half the invasion of exotic, non-native plants by empowering citizens with the education, tools and skills necessary to control invasive species. DCIST is committed to educating, preventing, minimizing, and eradicating invasive plants and reducing their impact on our natural resources, economic viability, and human welfare. The partnership promotes an open exchange of information, public and private sector coordination, and citizen involvement. The DCIST steering committee meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1pm. The committee is formed of representatives from local non-profit groups, citizen organizations, and local, state and federal agencies. For information on the next meeting, contact the DCIST coordinator at 920-746-5955 (message line). Public welcome.
