Georgian Bay Forever is planning two workshops on training and managing invasive Phragmites to help Georgian Bay’s coastal wetlands. You, too, can become a Phragbuster!

These workshops are free, but space is limited. Advance registration is required. Email us today at [email protected] to advise which you would like to attend (one location only), and we will confirm the details to you.

Topics and issues proposed will include (also open to your suggestions):

  • Summer 2015 success (and difficulties) stories, lessons to be learned
  • The threat this plant poses to wetlands, and current state of the fight (GBF)
  • Identifying invasive Phragmites vs. native Phragmites (GBF)
  • How to establish a phrag-busting community group (GBF and group discussion)
  • Mapping (GBF)
  • Planning – tools, timing, resources (GBF and group discussion)
  • When and How to do the cut in wetlands (GBF)
  • The commitment (GBF and group discussion)

In 2015, Georgian Bay Forever helped these communities. We want to help yours.
