USACE Buffalo, Detroit Districts complete 5-year study in Menominee AOC
The view towards Blueberry Island through riparian planting as part of the Menominee River Area of Concern (AOC) Aquatic Plant Control for Rookery Habitat Project in Lower Menominee River. The goal of the five-year project was to reduce the abundance of invasive species, so native plant communities can thrive in the future, and protect the rookery. The project completed several activities: invasive plant species controls; restoration planting with native trees, shrubs and seeds; vegetation monitoring; bird surveys; and stakeholder coordination.
