OWLT Can Help You Remove Aquatic Invasive Species
OWLT is looking for partners who have aquatic invasive plants that need to be controlled. We can help with funding, equipment, training and assistance. We just need to hear from you!
The Partners in Preservation for Aquatic Invasive Species Removal project is funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The project focuses on removing targeted noxious and invasive weed species within a six County area abutting Lake Michigan that includes, Ozaukee, Washington, Sheboygan, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha Counties.
Target plant species include, but are not limited to, Japanese Knotweed, Lyme Grass, Phragmites, and Purple Loosestrife. The Ozaukee Washington Land Trust will lead this project with help from partner organizations and volunteers. The goal of the project is to organize effective and efficient processes, procedures and groups of people that will endure beyond the project’s scheduled completion date and encourage invasive plant control well into the future.
The goals of the project include:
- Treat and protect 1500 acres
- Create a data base inventory of sites
- Follow-up monitoring of treated sites
- Provide on-going education
The Partners in Preservation for Invasive Species Control is offering funding, equipment, training and assistance to local government units, non-government organizations, non-profit organizations and other environmental groups through a competitive application process.
