June 2017 - The CWWP was fortunate to be awarded a team of eight AmeriCorps NCCC volunteers.  Arriving at the Hancock Agriculture Research Station on June 12 and departing on June 29, this hard working team assisted with sorting and preparing plants for hand and machine planting, installing weed barrier fabric, and hand weeding and mowing windbreak and living snow fence sites around Central Wisconsin.
