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. If left unchecked, cattails can quickly fill the wetland meadow areas historically occupied by native sedges and convert diverse, healthy ecosystems into a cattail “monoculture”.  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.
