About the Manitoba Purple Loosestrife Project

Initiated in 1992, the Manitoba Purple Loosestrife Project (MPLP) was a nonprofit coalition between Agriculture Canada, City of Winnipeg Parks and Open Spaces, Canadian Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited Canada, Manitoba Conservation, Manitoba Agriculture, Nature Manitoba, the Manitoba Weed Supervisors Association and Delta Waterfowl.

Today, the project consists of representation from Ducks Unlimited, Manitoba Conservation and the City of Winnipeg.  The project maintains 3 broad objectives:

Community education
Habitat restoration through bio-control beetle releases
Loosestrife mapping and monitoring
