Waukesha County Parks looking for 'agent' volunteers to help with 'Mission Possible' event

WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Have you always considered yourself the James Bond of nature? If so, then Waukesha Parks is looking for you!

For the second year in a row, Waukesha County Parks is hosting its "Mission Possible Volunteer Workday" event on Saturday, April 23 between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. 

The event is calling all "special agents" to help rid parks of invasive garlic mustard plants. 

“Garlic mustard is a very aggressive and invasive plant that is found throughout the park system,” said Julia Robson, Waukesha County Conservation Biologist. “Removal of garlic mustard helps make room for native plants and wildflowers that are crucial to the ecosystems and wildlife in our parks.”

Participants can register at one of five locations across Waukesha County--  Menomonee Park, Minooka Park, Mukwonago Park, Muskego Park, and Retzer Nature Center.

Attendees will meet at the “rendezvous point” for a map and supplies before heading to an area in need.

All other information and a video tutorial will be provided by email before the mission.

The event is free to attend. You can find more information here
