LAKESHORE NATURAL RESOURCES PARTNERSHIP INC.: Calumet Co Collaboritive Phragmites Control-Phase 1

Purpose

Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership is sponsoring a project to build upon a region-wide effort to control invasive Phragmites populations through expansion into Calumet County. Project partners will work collaboratively with stakeholders to provide public education and outreach, secure landowner permissions, use GIS-based mapping to track and monitor invasive population data, treat target invasive species, revegetate treated areas and develop long-term control strategies. Project deliverables include: 1) Maintain the Geographic Information System (GIS)-based mapping strategy to monitor and assess treatment success and extent of invasive Phragmites in collaboration with partner organizations; 2) Implement treatments to reduce established populations on public and private properties throughout the Phase 1 project area; 3) Identify suitable re-vegetation sites and install native vegetation after suitable level of Phragmites control is complete; 4) Facilitate coordinated, community-focused efforts with private landowners, non-profits, and local governments to identify and implement long-term control strategies; 5) Continue education and outreach efforts on invasive species issues in collaboration with partners; 6) Develop final report summarizing the project This scope summarizes the project detail provided in the application and does not negate tasks/deliverables described therein.
