LAKESHORE NATURAL RESOURCES PARTNERSHIP INC.: Manitowoc County Collaborative Phragmites Project - Phase 2

Purpose

Lakeshore Natural Resources Partnership is sponsoring a project to implement control measures for invasive phragmites along the Lake Michigan shoreline and near-lake shore Townships in Manitowoc County. Project final deliverables include: all data collected, agendas and minutes for planning meetings, and a lake management plan that includes methodologies, results, and management alternatives discussion with an implementation plan. Specific project activities include: 1) Continue implementation of adaptive mapping to monitor treatment success and extent of invasive Phragmites across the county; 2) Participate in collaborative research with UW-GB Cofrin Center for Biodiversity; 3) Implement treatments to address emerging infestations and reduce established populations within the Phase 2 project area; 4) Identify suitable re-vegetation sites and install native vegetation; 5) Facilitate coordinated, community-focused efforts with private landowners, non-profits and local governments to identify and implement long-term control strategies; 6) Continue education and outreach efforts on invasive species issues; 7) Conduct trainings for local governments who will conduct long-term control strategies within road rights-of-way and other public property; and 8) Develop a final report summarizing the overall project results. This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein.
