The Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission (RPC) is looking to gain more permission of landowners to control the spread of invasive species in Kewaunee County.  Through the funding from the EPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the Bay-Lake RPC is treating at least 1,000 acres of invasive Phragmites, Wild parsnip, and Japanese knotweed in Kewaunee County the next two years.  Natural Resources Planner Angela Kowalzek-Adrians says their project goal requires a twofold outreach to the public.

 

 

 

 

She adds that invasive species like Phragmites devalues property as well as makes it difficult for animal habitat to thrive.  You can find a link to report invasive species and the landowner permission form below.
