Nayanquing Point Wildlife Area is a tranquil haven just north of Bay City along the Saginaw Bay. It’s also under siege.

The European Frogbit appears harmless. Its small lily pad and delicate white flower was brought to North America as an ornamental pond plant.
But the Frogbit, like many other non-native plants, would not be contained.
