Invasive Species Prevention and Control on Belle Isle - Detroit River
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-6. This project aims to (1) control invasive terrestrial species already present on Belle Isle, located in the Detroit River within the Lake Erie watershed, and (2) help prevent new introductions of invasive species throughout the Great Lakes ecosystem by implementing a multi-pronged outreach/education program. Approximately 10 young adults from Detroit-area conservation programs will be hired to perform invasive species control work to protect the island's diverse ecosystem and to prevent re-infestation at two recent habitat restoration projects funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. In addition, the project will create exhibits and educational programming on the island focusing on aquatic invasive species threatening the Detroit River system and the Great Lakes.
