State awards grants to 35 invasive species research, management projects
The state is awarding $3.6 million dollars to universities, conservation districts, and nonprofits for their efforts to tackle invasive species.
The hemlock woolly adelgid, the spotted lanternfly, and red swamp crayfish may be familiar names. These invasive species are all on Michigan’s “watch list” and pose an immediate or potential threat to the state’s economy, environment, and health.
That’s why projects focused on prevention, detection, and management of these species are receiving state funding.
35 organizations across the state have been awarded funding through the grant program. Projects include invasive species research, education, and coordination efforts.
