Lyme Grass Threatens to Displace Dune Grass
The Muskegon Chronicle reports that lyme grass (an invasive species) is spreading and threatens to displace native dune grass (marram grass). Lyme grass has bigger seeds, tougher blades and a stiffer seed stalk and has been spotted at the Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area north of Ludington, at Mount Pisgah near Holland, and at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
