 Bulrushes
As stated in the Fall 1996 District Newsletter, the bulrushes provide numerous positiveand benefits to the lake, such as: anchoring sediments, protecting shorelines from wave erosion, providing substrate for invertebrates, food for waterfowl, substrate for fish eggs, nesting cover, improved water quality, fishery and wildlife functions.
The Norwegian Bay bulrush protection project actually began in the summer of 1995 with letters to the GLSD from concerned citizens and the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
The bulrush protection area WILL NOT affect the Norwegian Bay Canal (which is the primary lake access point for area residents) or the Norwegian Bay Sandbar (which is a primary swimming spot for boaters).

 Bulrush
Bulrushes are perennial grass-like plants and can grow to 10 feet tall in shallow water or in moist soils.
Giant bulrush can also grow to 10 feet, is dark green with a hard, triangular stem and no obvious leaves (sheaths at the base of the stems).
Seeds of bulrushes are consumed by ducks and other birds while geese, muskrats, and nutria consume the rhizomes and early shoots.

 Beautiful Bulrushes, Remarkable Reeds
Bulrushes used to clean the wastewater from a sugar plant were periodically harvested and sold to fatten ducks, being excellent fodder also for cows and other stock.
Bulrushes, having a single growth zone at the stem base (the intercalarcic meristem), can constantly grow out of an aggressive water or sludge zone along its entire height and can be harvested twice a year to keep them working.
Bulrush Kate seems more in tune with thousands of years of pre-industrial agriculture in which people met their needs by learning nature's creative ways to create their own productive nonpolluting ecosystems without ever seeing their work as engineered miracles.

 Ark Of Bulrushes (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) :: Bible Tools
Bulrushes (gome', "papyrus"): This species of reed was used by the Egyptians for many different vessels, some of which were intended to float or even to be used as a skiff.
Thus the ark of bulrushes was a vessel made of papyrus stalks and rendered fit to float by being covered with a mixture of bitumen and mud.
Into this floating vessel the mother of Moses placed the boy when he was three months old, and put the vessel in the water among the sedge along the banks of the Nile at the place where the ladies from the palace were likely to come to bathe.

 Alkali and Saltmarsh Bulrush   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
I assume that alkali and saltmarsh bulrushes are wind-pollinated.
In summary, both bulrushes have adaptations for achene production, dissemination, and germination in unstable environments where water levels and salinities fluctuate and bottom sediments are exposed.
A substantial amount of the current-year growth of both bulrushes depends on the carbohydrate-rich corms that can remain dormant under conditions of low water levels and high salinity for at least 2 years.

 Alkali and Saltmarsh Bulrush   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The group of bulrushes is recognized by perennial rhizomatous habit; large, hard, carbohydrate-rich corms or "tubers" on the rhizomes; leafy, sharply triangular stems; leaflike bracts accompanying the inflorescence; large spikelets; and floral scales that are minutely hairy and apically trifid with prominent midrib extensions ("awns").
These two bulrushes are especially variable in their zones of sympatry on the northern Atlantic coast as described by Fernald (1943) and Schuyler (1975) and in California (S. Smith, unpublished).
This bulrush occurs in much of North America from about 62° N in Alaska's Cook Inlet area and Northwest Territories, to approximately 55° N on James Bay (where disjunct; Riley and McKay 1980), to about 51° N on the Atlantic coast in Quebec and south to Mexico.

Recent management efforts have focused on thinning stands of the two bulrushes or intermixing them with stands of shorter emergents and submersed plants in order to increase the variety of food plants available to waterfowl and other birds.
The author did not reference the simple occurrence of either bulrush in various wetlands worldwide or early taxonomic and genetic studies.
The importance of the two bulrushes for wildlife was recognized by most managers, and they were confident of their ability to establish and maintain stands of these plants on the lands they manage.

Indeed, the resemblance of the baby in the present picture to the infant Christ in the manger is surely no coincidence, and may have been connected with Reynolds?s work on that subject.
Among the most striking aspects of Moses in the Bulrushes, apart from its fine condition, is the experimental use of colour, especially in the flesh tones of the child, and the draperies upon which he is laid.
Reynolds also appears to have been mindful of Rubens when he painted Moses in the Bulrushes, which may also be a work of the early 1780s.

In several areas, managers have switched their efforts from producing monotypic stands of a few species of waterfowl food plants to growing mixed stands with greater numbers of plant species that attract waterfowl and other marsh or aquatic birds.
To meet these goals, some managers have directed their efforts toward thinning stands of the two bulrushes or intermixing bulrush stands with those of other food plants, especially shorter emergents and submersed species.
However, a few managers expressed a need for increased research on propagation techniques for the two bulrushes where the only available water is small amounts of highly saline irrigation return flows.

Mayors today know that their decisions on water and wastewater infrastructure have repercussions for the larger watershed, even though their cities may occupy only a portion of that watershed.
This marsh-loving grass, along with cattails and other species, is now being used on a large scale to filter the city's treated sewage before it enters Butler Creek and the Savannah River downstream.
The city has a water professional operating the treatment facility at a cost savings, and the Central Savannah Region has an educational facility and nature park that is second to none.
