Description: In 2016, The Nature Conservancy was awarded a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grant to control 1,000 acres of invasive plant species throughout the coastal habitats of Lake Erie in northeast Ohio. The project targets invasive woody and herbaceous species, considers timing to avoid impacts to birds during nesting and migration, and capitalizes on the opportunity to educate the visitors to Ohio’s beaches on the importance of coastal health. Join Zachary Kron in his presentation discussing the approach and results of the initial treatment year, “Invasive Plant Control Along the Lake Erie Shoreline in Northeast Ohio.”
