Fund For Lake Michigan

Partners in Preservation

Support from the Fund for Lake Michigan will enable Ozaukee Washington Land Trust to implement its innovative Partners in Preservation program. They will control pioneer colonies of at least four aquatic invasive species including, but not limited to, Phragmites, Purple Loosestrife, Lyme Grass and Japanese Knotweed, on 1,500 acres of wetland and riparian habitat over a six-county area. The Fund’s support will enable OWLT to treat pioneer colonies on private lands, preventing them from causing the reintroduction and spread of these invaders on recently treated public lands.
