Buckthorn Cleanup on Conservancy Properties

October-November TBD

The Green Team is ready to tackle another year of fall buckthorn removal on Saturday mornings. This fall is the team’s 12th year cleaning up various Conservancy properties. Everyone is welcome to participate in the work and the fun!

The team will be working each and every Saturday morning this fall until the weather shuts them down. Work site locations will vary from week to week, so stay tuned for location adjustments.


Be sure to wear long pants and sleeves, as well as leather gloves and solid shoes, to each cleanup event. Anyone with access to chainsaws is encouraged to bring them along to aid in the buckthorn removal.



If you think you can make a Saturday morning or have any questions, please contact Jerry Specht at or by phone at 920-229-4468 so the team can plan accordingly!
