Another Invasive Species
Michigan Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Division is leading response
efforts to control a new aquatic invasive plant, European frog-bit (Hydrocharis morsus-ranae).
Until recently, this free-floating plant had only been reported in a
few localized sites in the southeastern Lower Peninsula. Through recent
statewide monitoring efforts, this species has been detected in Saginaw
Bay, Alpena and Munuscong Bay in Chippewa County.
