Invasive Phragmites is a serious ecological threat to wetlands and shore lands in the eastern Georgian Bay area. This invasive plant, which has been moving north at an alarming rate, has the potential to dominate wetland plant communities, reducing plant diversity and degrading or eliminating habitat that supports wildlife.
You can learn how to help deal with this threat at a workshop in Parry Sound on Friday, April 28, 2017. It will be held at Canadore College, 1 College Drive, from 8:45 am to 12:15 pm.
The workshop will be hosted by Georgian Bay Forever, Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve and the Ontario Phragmites Working Group. It is aimed at both community members and municipal staff. The focus will be on identification and cutting Phragmites, best management practices, organizing volunteer groups and available resources.
You can register for the workshop at www.gbf.org.
