Northeast 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.
