ONEIDA COUNTY - The battle against invasive species in the Northwoods has moved from the waterways to the roadways.
The Wisconsin Headwaters Invasive Partnership started tracking invasive plant species with funding from Lumberjack Resource Conservation & Development.
The goal of the project is to find out how many and what kind of invasive plant species have wound up in the Northwoods.
"I'm looking for things like purple loosetrife, buck thorns, spotted napweed. Things that people will see everyday and not necessarily know they don't particularly belong here in this part of Wisconsin." Rosie Page will survey the 172 miles of highway while walking the roads. It's a good thing Rosie used to be a runner.
The data will be collected in a GPS unit describing what kind of plant and where it was found.
The information will be mapped out, and a plan for controlling the invasives will be established.
In November 2006, nearly 60 percent of Wisconsin voters supported an amendment banning gay marriage.
Before Wisconsin lawmakers could consider a bill to allow gay marriage, voters would have to pass an amendment undoing the 2006 amendment language. But before that the Legislature would have to pass the amendment in two consecutive sessions.
