Although phragmites is out of control in much of southern Ontario it is not out of control in our area yet. Here, we have a chance to keep it at bay if we act quickly and together over the next few years. Removal of stands over 2 or 3 years have proved to be successful in other areas (we have learned from the Ontario Phragmites Working Group and other organizations). The first step is identification and communicating where those locations are. The best site for logging sightings is the EDD Ontario website (and they would like photos to accompany your information). Stay tuned for communication about where and when work parties will be removing stands next year”
