The Huron River Wetlands area, a unique and threatened wetland community known as Lake Erie Riverine Marsh, is invaded by invasive plant species, including, narrow-leaf cattail, common reed, and purple loosestrife. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History will control 76 acres of invasive species and the site will be monitored using the Great Lakes Coastal Monitoring program ecosystem health protocols. The invasive species removal will provide the structural mudflat mosaics necessary for the native flora and fauna, including rare plant species, migratory shorebirds, and wading birds.
