Greg Norwood is the Invasive Species Coordinator for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources – Wildlife Division and previously served for ten years as a biological technician and wildlife biologist with the Detroit River National Wildlife Refuge. He has formerly managed Phragmites at Crosswinds Marsh Wetland Interpretive Preserve for Wayne County. As a wildlife biologist, Greg championed extensive Phragmites control in collaboration with local researchers and stewardship organizations along western Lake Erie marshes of highest conservation value. The partnerships and stakeholder engagement resulted in the Detroit River-Western Lake Erie Cooperative Weed Management Area which provided resources to restore these special places. Greg recognizes the importance of developing long-term plans that include appropriate stakeholder engagement, defining broadly desired environmental outcomes, setting of meaningful thresholds, and sufficient monitoring to improve management over time. He holds degrees in biology from the University of Michigan-Dearborn and Eastern Michigan University.
