MICHIGAN, Marquette County CD, Alger CD, Upper Peninsula RC&D — The Marquette County Conservation District was awarded a $60,000 grant so the Lake-to-Lake CISMA, or Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area, can continue to implement core elements of its strategic plan and goals in Marquette, Alger, Delta and Schoolcraft counties. These include management of cooperative treatments, facilitating communication among partners and landowners, and leading educational outreach efforts.

The Alger Conservation District will receive $159,200, so three CISMAs in the Upper Peninsula can collaborate to survey for hemlock woolly adelgid, and incorporate the adelgid’s identification and prevention into outreach programs. Project counties are Marquette, Alger, Menominee, Delta, Schoolcraft, Mackinac, Chippewa, Luce and Dickinson.

The Upper Peninsula Resources Conservation and Development Council will receive $191,600, so coalition partners can restore 200 acres of coastal and interior wetlands by eradicating phragmites and managing secondary and watch list species that have infested previously treated sites.
