Lake Basin(s):

Superior, Michigan

Project Location(s):

The Upper Peninsula Resource Conservation and Development Council and many partners implemented a long-term strategy to eliminate invasive garlic mustard from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  They worked to treat every known garlic mustard infestation and increased local capacity to continue control beyond the project period.  Project outcome goals included:  1) improved habitat for native plant communities and native wildlife on 350 acres; and 2) a well-trained volunteer network made up of at least 40 organizations, agencies, and other groups that will work together on early detection and rapid response to existing and new garlic mustard infestations.
