Abstract: 2015 was the third year of EnviroScience performing a vegetation survey following the same methods outlined in the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and at similar times each summer to ensure consistent plant identification each survey year. The goal of this survey was to document the extent of the aquatic invasive species Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum, herein referred to as milfoil), as well as to document the diverse native plant community occurring in the bays and navigation channels throughout the Les Cheneaux Islands.
