Phragmites Control Project-Landowner Workshop

  • Ellwood H. May Environmental Park (map)

Invasive Phragmites is a perennial wetland grass introduced from Europe that grows rapidly, forming dense stands which crowd out native vegetation, in turn reducing plant species diversity and wildlife habitat quality. This menacing plant is also a safety and fire hazard and clogs drainage ways rapidly.

The workshop presenters will discuss the project overview, planning efforts, landowner expectations, project timeline, communication plan and ways you can help with the control efforts. In order to develop a truly collaborative and effective control strategy, this project needs assistance from landowners like you!
