Coastal & Riparian Habitat Restoration
Invasive species are one of the biggest threats to biodiversity and ecosystem health
CAKE CISMA staff and our partners are excited to take the next step towards protecting and enhancing some of the most unique and imperiled freshwater coastal dune and wetland habitats through the management of invasive species. Thanks to funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the hard work of the staff at Michigan Natural Features Inventory a comprehensive survey of coastal and riparian areas was conducted and subsequently prioritized based on the quality, rarity, size, landscape context, and habitat for rare species. We're taking the information they gathered and working to improve the habitats they surveyed. Read on to learn more about how we're protecting the places we all know & love.
