Abstract: EnviroScience (ES) biologists have been monitoring the changes to the plant community in areas directly related to the milfoil weevil and its’ impact on EWM since the inception of the program in 2007. However since 2013, ES was requested to capture a more detailed inventory of submersed and emergent aquatic plant community of the shorelines of the Les Cheneaux Chain of Islands (LCI) on Lake Huron. This was initiated after the infestation of EWM increased to approximately 1,000 acres throughout LCI in 2012.
