Lake Basin(s):

Erie

Project Location(s):

Northeast Ohio

The Nature Conservancy removed and controlled invasive species on 77 acres of wetlands and uplands in the Lake Erie watershed.  Invasive species have spread rapidly and represent a major management challenge and threat to the quality of native plan communities in the Great Lakes.  This effort used approve herbicides to control and remove reed canary grass, phragmities, glossy buckthorn, narrow-leaved cattail, and hybrid cattail.  This project aimed to control these invasive species, which are critical to the survival of globally rare plant communities in the region.
