Mike Yanny was among those receiving the Invader Crusader Award given by the Wisconsin Council on Invasive Species and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources at Wisconsin’s 10th annual Invader Crusader awards June 5 at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison. 

Mike has helped build bridges between the nursery industry, regulators and the conservation community since work on Wisconsin’s Invasive Species Rule began.  Mike is the owner of JN Plant Selections and is the senior horticulturist at Johnson's Nursery.  He has served on teams of experts evaluating species considered for regulation and as such has helped to foster cooperation with the nursery industry
 
From his nominator:  “He has served to build a communication bridge and working relationship between industry and conservationists that will ultimately lessen the impact of invasive plants on Wisconsin natural areas over time.”
