Natural Heritage Niche

Connecting people with information and resources to care for their land. The Natural Heritage Niche is a publication of the Wisconsin DNR's Bureau of Natural Heritage Conservation and is released biannually.

Controlling invasive plants can seem overwhelming. Our Spring/Summer issue helps you get a game plan for garlic mustard, one of the most common invaders, and assess what else you can take on without burning yourself out. Find lighter topics, too, and the inspiring story of a landowner whose property is home to a rare dragonfly. Spring/Summer issue 2017 [PDF].
