Ottawa County CD receives invasive species program funding

December 26, 2018by ncdea

MICHIGAN, Ottawa County CD — More than two dozen projects across the state, including the Ottawa County Conservation District, will share $3.6 million in Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program funding. The Ottawa County Conservation District was awarded two grants of $199,900 and $60,000 in invasive species programs.  The $60,000 is to carry out basic work in the area of managing outreach programs, treatment programs, survey efforts and public meetings.

The additional grant funding is to continue employing strike teams, said Joanne Foreman, the Invasive Species Program communications coordinator.

“In Michigan we rely so much on natural resources, not only for jobs in forestry but also with recreation,” Foreman said. “That’s huge for us whether it’s tourism or native Michiganders getting out and enjoying resources. Invasive species are a huge threat to those things we [hold] so dear in Michigan.”
