Abstract: This plan outlines the strategic approach with an emphasis on education, early detection, and rapid response to coordinate and implement best management practices in controlling specific invasive terrestrial and aquatic plant species in the Eastern Upper Peninsula. This plan is intended to bring together those responsible for weed management within Chippewa, Mackinac and Luce counties. The partners will develop common management objectives, set realistic management priorities, facilitate effective treatment, and coordinate efforts along logical geographic boundaries with similar land types, use patterns, and problem species.
