Landowner Resources

Invasive Species Assistance for Landowners

We work with public and private landowners to identify and remove invasive species like phragmites, Japanese knotweed, garlic mustard and more. A hallmark of our program has been the Invasive Species SWAT Team, which takes the time to visit with landowners and provide them with recommendations for how to best approach invasive species control on their land—often through our innovative cost-share program. 

Our invasive species team is available to identify suspicious plants, provide resources and referrals, visit your property and even do group presentations. Our mobile boat wash is a great tool for teaching boaters who visit the area about preventing aquatic invasive species, and we are taking event reservations for the 2017 season. Please contact us at or (989) 448-2293 ext. 17 for more information.
