Numerous invasive plant species are causing significant harm to Northeast Michigan natural communities. Huron Pines is coordinating an Invasive Species Removal Program focusing on phragmites, Japanese knotweed and garlic mustard. Huron Pines also coordinates removal efforts of purple loosestrife, buckthorn, autumn olive, wild parsnip and spotted knapweed. Because many of these species are so widespread, this project presents an opportunity for many schools and community organizations to collaborate upon a single issue. Please contact Huron Pines if you are interested in learning more and joining the fight against invasive species.
