Our Program Assistant

Michele

Michele Jasik joined IPAW in February 2013. As the Program Assistant, Michele performs several tasks: she maintains the membership database; does the layout for, edits the articles for, and emails the quarterly newsletter, "Plants Out of Place;" she tries to keep up with social media (don't forget to Like us on Facebook); is a sometimes photographer; is a sometimes writer; takes the minutes of meetings; and (with the tremendous help of Scott) maintains the website. If you email IPAW, she is the one who will respond to you or will forward your email on to the appropriate person. Michele also finds time to volunteer at The Nature Conservancy and for the West Madison Senior Coalition, when she is not hiking with her dog, kayaking, or on her yoga mat. She is a graduate of Purdue University's Natural Resource and Environmental Science program. Her previous positions were working in labs at Purdue University and then at the University of Wisconsin Madison. She grew up working at a family owned greenhouse business and small farm. Michele has a life-long love of native plants, especially in woodlands.


And, Most Importantly, You!

You can help to prevent the spread of invasive plants! You can start right now by volunteering for activities or lend the much needed support through membership fees or giving a monetary donation.

Our Mission

"To promote better stewardship of the natural resources of Wisconsin by advancing the understanding of invasive plants and encouraging the control of their spread."
