Presented by: Shikha Singh, PhD.
For those in the field of invasion biology, or residents who are trying to manage their property, it can sometimes feel like a race against time until the next species appears! We will discuss some of the priority species for our region, such as European frog-bit, mile-a-minute weed, red swamp crayfish, and Japanese stiltgrass. We have two highways that run through our CISMA which see heavy traffic from Chicago to Ann Arbor, and connects southern Michigan to both northern Michigan and Ontario. We wish to share some of our challenges and successes in hopes to better prepare land managers for what is coming their way, and some of our educational efforts aimed at prevention.
