Communty Forest Restoration Shed Herbicide and Invasive Training
Get trained on herbicide use and invasive species identification to get access to resources to treat invasive species on your own land.
Do you want to remove invasive plants like tansy or Canada thistle from your land but don’t know how or don’t have the right equipment?
The Community Forest Restoration Shed at Sugarloaf Cove houses tools, herbicide application equipment, and herbicides that are available for anyone to use. People wishing to use herbicides must participate in a two-hour training on herbicides, safety, and invasive plants of the North Shore. During the training participants will learn how herbicides work, how to apply herbicides correctly and safely, and alternate control methods.
Herbicides and herbicide application equipment is available during training times but alternative pick-up dates can be arranged with the Cook County Invasives Team coordinator after taking the course. A list of equipment that is available for use can be found HERE.
If you have already taken the course and would like to retreat this year, please complete the registration form and we will be in touch with you.
Equipment for the shed was purchased with the assistance from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Sustain our Great Lakes grant. Trainings are in partnership with the Cook County Invasives Team and the U.S. Forest Service.
