Project Title & Description
Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention and Monitoring in the Eastern Great Lakes Basin
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-74. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) will develop models that predict the spread of hydrilla verticillata and other aquatic invasive species (AIS) across the New York, northwestern Pennsylvania, and eastern Ohio portion of the Great Lakes basin. TNC will also conduct monitoring surveys for targeted AIS and will use this monitoring data to plan, promote, and develop local AIS control projects.
