LAKESHORE NATURAL RESOURCES PARTNERSHIP INC.: Sheboygan-Manitowoc Bluff Shoreline Phragmites Control

Purpose

The Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership is sponsoring a project to control Phragmites populations along the shoreline of Lake Michigan in both Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties between the Pidgeon River and Centerville Creek. Project activities include: 1) Joining data collected by different organizations and compiling it into a collaborative GIS-based web mapping platform; 2) Collaborate with Stantec and UW-Green Bay on a large-scale research project by collecting and utilizing data from sites associated with this project; 3) Initial treatments of Phragmites, as well as follow-up treatments of stands that had been treated in 2017; 4) Identification of suitable re-vegetation sites and installation of native vegetation; 5) Identify and implement long term control strategies on a community level (private landowners, non-profits, local governments); 6) Disseminate materials for educational and outreach purposes, host restoration field days, enhance citizen science capabilities, and other activities as specified in Activity 1.f. of the application dated 02/01/2018. Project Deliverables include: 1) A web map that will be made available to partners, and map figures/reported treatment results available to natural resource managers and the public; 2) Annual monitoring and treatment data (as inputs to the model), and the final predictive model that will guide broad-scale Phragmites management efforts (lead by USGS and GLC); and 3) Significant reduction of Phragmites in the project area. Specific project conditions: A draft copy of the final report will be provided to the WDNR for review before the report is finalized. WDNR will be provided electronic and hard copies of data and reports/plans generated as a result of this project. This scope summarizes the scope in the grant application and attachments and does not supersede those application tasks/deliverables.
