Outreach & Education Programs

School Outreach

The Cook County Invasives Team has visited classrooms in communities in Cook County to educate students about invasive species.


Wildflower Walks


Fair Booths

The Cook County Invasive Team partnered with the Minnesota Sea Grant, Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Minnesota DNR, and the National Park Service to provide a public outreach booth at Fisherman’s Picnic and The Cook County Fair in Grand Marais, MN.


Boot Brush Stations

Cook County Invasive Team installed boot brush signs at seven trailheads in Cook County. Invasive plant seeds can be spread into natural areas by ‘hitchhiking’ on shoes as visitors travel from infested to uninfested areas.
