Welcome to the Northeast Michigan 2017 Frog-Bit Challenge! Our goal is to help clean our waterways and prevent the spread of the invasive European frog-bit. You can help by pulling the plant on your own, reporting sightings and encouraging your friends and neighbors to help too. Huron Pines will provide supplies, maps and manpower. We hope to pull 20,000 lbs. this year!
