Topic: Using native sedges to restore wetlands

Speaker: Kevin Scheiwiller, Restoration Manager, Citizens for Conservation

Kevin will discuss how to use warrior sedges to combat wetland invasives and rebuild a functioning sedge meadow. If you have ever attempted to take on wetland thugs such as reed canary grass, cattails, or phragmites you know how difficult your restoration efforts can be. He will also describe specific sedges that thrive in residential rain gardens.  Kevin has a degree in Environmental Science from Loyola University Chicago.
