TOP 12 INVASIVE SPECIES
There are many invasive species in northwest Michigan, both aquatic and terrestrial. ISN prioritizes them based on their habitat impact and management feasibility. The species featured on this list are the terrestrial plants that are already established in our region which are at a higher risk to harm our regional ecology. They are
prioritized in messaging, outreach, and - when possible - control efforts by ISN and many of our partners.
Please click on the images below for more information on each species.
The "Top 12" list of invasive plants was established in 2019 and replaces the former "Top 20".
