  1. Hi All, I'm putting together a training for one of my drain commissions and their contractors on invasive species and what they can do. I'm trying to put together a list of the invasive species that most affect county drains. so far my list is: Phragmites, Narrow leaf cattail, and Japanese knotweed. The criteria I'm generally thinking about are: increased erosion, potential to spread via waterways, and potential to clog up the drains / impact their function. I was wondering if anyone had thoughts on other invasive species that may be good to teach them about, or other ways that IS can impact county drains. Any input is appreciated.
  2. Update: right after I posted this the land manager got back to me and said that the area is much wetter in the spring, so that explains that!
  3. Hi All. I was at a site yesterday where they're restoring some Prairie land, and there was a large area of purple loosetrife. Michigan Flora lists purple loosetrife as an obligate wetland species, but the area looked pretty dry to me. just curious if anyone else has seen this happening at other sites.
