USACE Buffalo, Detroit Districts complete 5-year study in Menominee AOC
Oak plantings on Little Blueberry Island, Lower Menominee River, were part of the Menominee River Area of Concern (AOC) Aquatic Plant Control for Rookery Habitat Project. 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.
