Great Lakes Invasive Plant Management Plan/EA

The National Park Service has prepared an Environmental Assessment for a Great Lakes Invasive Plant Management Plan for the following ten parks located in the Great Lakes region: Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Grand Portage National Monument, Ice Age National Scenic Trail, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Isle Royale National Park, Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, and Voyageurs National Park.

The Great Lakes Invasive Plant Management Plan Environmental Assessment (IPMP EA) identifies long-term management tools that would reduce the impacts of (or threats from) invasive plants to natural and cultural resources and provide opportunities for restoring native plant communities and cultural landscapes.
