Toting Global Positioning System (GPS) units, datasheets on clipboards, and an enthusiasm for Great Lakes science, youth participating in the 2014 4-H Great Lakes and Natural Resources (GLNR) Campwere on the hunt for aquatic invasive plants this summer. Getting their feet wet exploring Lake Huron’s coastal wetlands, they gained first-hand career experience with wetland ecologists from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Huron Pines. They also contributed to an important stewardship service project aimed at mapping invasive plants, such asPhragmites, along the Presque Isle County coastline.
