Wow!!! What a difference! You’ll surely notice if driving or walking along Outer Drive in Port Franks that a large part of the wall of impenetrable Phragmites that has been well established in that part of the L Lake wetland for so long is GONE! This is part of a two year project undertaken by Lambton Shores Phragmites Community Group, Nature Conservancy of Canada / Conservation de la nature Canada , the Ausable Bayfield Conservation and the Municipality of Lambton Shores. The Phrag was treated in the fall. To improve habitat regeneration and increase the effectiveness of any required follow-up treatments in fall 2023, it is important to cut and roll the dead stems. This work will take place this winter. The crew from Nature Conservancy accomplished a lot today but conditions were not ideal in some areas. There is more to do so they’ll be back weather permitting!
