The Lake Shore Marshes Wildlife Management Area provides habitat for a wide variety of wetland and aquatic wildlife species, including several species of migrating fish that use these wetlands for spawning sites. Unfortunately, this diverse ecosystem is currently threatened by the invasion of narrow-leaved cattail, a nonnative aquatic plant that grows in dense stands with roots that form thick, impenetrable mats. Cattail mats have severely reduced both the access to and availability of appropriate spawning sites for migrating fish. Thanks to two grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the contributions of several partner organizations, Ducks Unlimited is working to restore spawning habitat and return Lake Shore Marshes to a more natural condition.
