Invasive Species Management

The Bay-Lake RPC undertakes local and regional project to manage or mitigate invasive species such as the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), Phragmites, Japanese knotweed, and Wild parsnip. Our projects range from municipal EAB mitigation plans to countywide treatment of multiple invasive species.

Past projects include: City of Algoma, Wisconsin Emerald Ash Borer Readiness Plan, November 2010; Kewaunee County, Wisconsin Emerald Ash Borer Readiness Plan, October 2010; and two-year management of Phragmites in Brown County along the lower bay, Fox River, East River, Duck Creek, and Baird Creek.

CURRENT Invasive Species Management PROJECT

Kewaunee County Invasive Species Management

Our current invasive species management project is an EPA GLRI funded project to manage Phragmites, Japanese knotweed, and Wild parsnip in Kewaunee County. This project will include two season of herbicide treatment on public and private land in 2018 and 2019. 

We currently have a Request for Qualifications/Bids out for the treatment in Kewaunee County in 2018 and 2019.

If you would like to report the presence of Phragmites, Japanese knotweed, and Wild parsnip in Kewaunee County, please do so in our inventory map app.  Please submit a landowner permission form giving us permission to treat invasives on your land.

2018 treatments will get underway after September 3rd. Regular updates on treatment locations will be provided on our Invasive Treatment Hotline at (920) 430-0220.
