Ecological Restoration

Ecological Restoration

The Great Lakes Commission through the Great Lakes Sediment and Nutrient Reduction Program has granted Hawthorn Hollow $154,830 to install our Wetland Restoration for Ravine Protection Project. This project started 2 years ago with a $75,000 grant from the Fund For Lake Michigan to develop the engineering plan for the project. The ravine and wetland restoration area are on the west end of the new property. The restoration work will take about 3 years. Once completed, we will connect and expand trails onto the new property.

The Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium provided Hawthorn Hollow with a $2,000 grant for supplies and chemicals to control the invasive plant species in our ravine and wetland restoration area. The grant will help us control cut-leaved teasel, buckthorn, reed canary grass and more before and during the installation of our wetland restoration project. This will help us achieve a better outcome for our restoration project.

What provides that much needed oxygen that is so essential for our survival? What brings value to our lives, either as an investment in our homes or in our mental and physical wellbeing/health? The answer to that is simple. Trees!

Our trees at Hawthorn Hollow have been receiving some much needed TLC from Aaron Schauer and his students enrolled in the Arborist and Urban Forestry Technician program at Gateway Technical College. Future arborists and urban forestry technicians have been learning about the proper techniques to assess, trim, remove, and climb trees safely in our living laboratory. These real world experiences support the skill development needed by these students as they prepare for careers as arborists and urban forestry technicians. We are grateful for the assistance that these bright individuals are providing to improve the safety of our landscape and the health of our living treasures, trees. Thank you Aaron and student arborists for caring for our trees!

The Arborist and Urban Forestry Technician Program is a 2 year program at Gateway Technical College. If you know of someone who is interested in pursuing a career in the field of arboriculture or urban forestry, please contact Aaron Schauer, Instructor/ Program Director Arboriculture/ Urban Forestry – GTC at schauera@gtc.edu or 262-564-2464.
