The Bay Mills Indian Community recognizes the importance of having functioning systems to support natural flow of water, native fish and wildlife, and a healthy tribal community. With that in mind the Tribe is worried about the threat that terrestrial and aquatic invasive species have and will have on the natural functioning of the lands they inhabit and use. We are requesting funding from the Bureau of Indian Affairs under their Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to hire a person for a term of two years to: 1.Complete an assessment of Tribal Land for invasive species 2.Develop a management plan that includes species present on the reservation, those quickly encroaching Tribal Land, and those proposed to come to our area in the near future. 3.Start implementation of the plan for those species currently present on the Reservation and make an implementation plan for those soon to arrive.
