00E01294Michigan State UniversityIMPLEMENTING TRAP-BASED CONTROL OF SEA LAMPREY IN THE GREAT LAKES

This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-6. The project will test the effectiveness of "Push­ Pull" trapping of sea lampreys, a species which has historically been difficult to trap in significant numbers. "Push-Pull" trapping is an innovative trapping technique utilizing the lamprey's natural responses to two types of chemicals: I) a "Push" response whereby a chemical repels the lamprey; and 2) a "Pull" response whereby a different chemical attracts it. The project, which will be carried out in the Carp and Ocqueoc Rivers (located in the Lake Huron watershed within the upper peninsula and northeastern lower Michigan, respectively) will seek to determine whether the use of both chemicals in a particular river segment will "steer" the sea lamprey to the area of trap placement and cause them to remain there, resulting in a much more significant capture rate.

00E01296Ducks Unlimited Inc.INVASIVE SPECIES CONTROL AT BRADDOCK BAY, NEW YORK.

This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-6. This project will significantly improve the quality of 205 acres of coastal marsh in New York�s Braddock Bay Fish and Wildlife Management Area, located within the Lake Ontario watershed, by removing and inhibiting the growth of invasive cattails.

Removing and preventing the reintroduction of cattails restores ecosystems to self-reproducing and diverse biological communities with a greater abundance of wildlife and which provide greater recreational opportunities. The project consists of various on-the-ground, innovative techniques to control cattail and encourage the growth of sedge meadow by cutting channels and potholes, mowing, and applying herbicide.

Summer on the Marsh establishes a regional network of eight summer camp programs, in the five coastal New England states, grounded in field experiences for environmental education. The program includes citizen science monitoring by campers ages 9-12, support and training for informal science center staff and partner scientists, and dissemination to peers at regional and national forums. The vision of Summer on the Marsh is to facilitate real-world conservation opportunities throughout New England that will establish a stewardship ethic in young people. The primary goal of this project is to enhance capacity of marine science centers to meaningfully engage youth in field based citizen science protection for coastal waters. Participants learn how salt marshes connect to their own homes, how marsh health affects human health, and how monitoring can help measure how healthy a salt marsh is. Educating and engaging young people about the health of ecosystems where they live allows them to become better stewards.

00E01295Huron PinesNORTHEAST MICHIGAN INVASIVE SPECIES CONTROL AND PREVENTION PROGRAM

This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-16. This project expands upon an existing and highly-successful phragmites early detection/rapid response program in a large portion of northeastern Michigan by: 1) targeting other invasive plants such as garlic mustard, Japanese knotweed and purple loosestrife; and 2) specifically targeting pathways for the spread of invasive plants such as roadways, ditches, rivers and source populations. The project will rely on established partnerships within northeastern Michigan between community groups, agencies, local governments and private businesses to educate and train local community members in invasive plant species management techniques. The project promotes job creation by providing both temporary and permanent jobs, including employment through the AmeriCorps program. Project work will be done in the 4.2 million acres Huron Pines service area of northeastern Michigan, located in the Lake Huron watershed.

99T02301CA State Coastal ConservancySF BAY WATER QUALTIY IMPROVEMENT FUND

This project will plan, design and obtain permits for tidal wetlands restoration at the salt ponds in the Alviso and Ravenswood complexes of the South Bay Salt Pond Project, the largest tidal wetlands restoration program on the West Coast. When implementation of the restoration plans are complete, in the Alviso complex, the project will result in 710 acres of tidal restoration and enhancement of 325 acres of existing tidal marsh (the Charleston Slough mitigation project (60 acres) and Island Pond A19 (265 acres)); in the Ravenswood complex, the project will result in 295 acres tidal restoration and 60 acres of managed pond habitats. This project implements water quality actions listed under the San Francisco Estuary Partnership�s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (SFEP CCMP).

This assistance agreement provides full federal funding in the amount of $866,021.

97744401Sac & Fox Tribe of Mississippi in IowaMESKWAKI TRIBE CLEAN AIR ACT 103 FY 13-14

The Meskwaki Nation proposes to use CAA 103 funding to continue to develop and increase the capacity of their tribal air program by doing the following: acquiring pertinent training; continuing to collect and organize meteorological data; doing community outreach through social media, newsletter articles and participation in tribal outreach events; incorporating data collected in FY2014 on daily traffic counts, including train traffic, into their emissions inventory. The tribe will create a searchable data file that will enable them to compile the information into a tribal air assessment and needs report for tribal council; the air program will coordinate with the Meskwaki Housing Program and Facilities Management to inventory existing climate control systems, radon mitigation systems and other mechanical aspects of the indoor environment as part of addressing issues and concerns related to indoor air quality. The air tech will also work with the Meskwaki Health Clinic to correllate reported respiratory health issues with these mechanical aspects with the intention of making recommendations for maintenance and upgrades to tribal council.

00J78501Washington State Dept. of Natural ResourcesWETLAND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT

The Washington Natural Heritage Program has been implementing a three-phased project since 2011 to update statewide information on Natural Heritage Wetlands (NHW) and to transfer this information to the public. They anticipate updating approximately 36% of existing NHW records during the three phases. They propose to continue field surveys to fill data gaps and to simultaneously develop a statewide network of wetland reference standard sites. This will ensure the best available information about the location and status of NHWs is used in the application of the Washington Department of Ecology�s Wetland Rating System to determine the ecological consequences of permit and other land use decisions that may affect wetlands with irreplaceable values.
