The Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission will receive $999,648 over two years to work with public and private landowners to remove 1,500 acres of Phragmites along the shores of Green Bay on Lake Michigan within the Lower Green Bay & Fox River Area of Concern. The project will identify and prioritize removal sites and provide training to landowners on methods to control Phragmites.
