Invasive Phragmites is threatening our community. Without your help, precious natural habitat will be lost.
Phragmites is an invasive plant that’s damaging Ontario’s biodiversity, wetlands and beaches. It is aggressive. It spreads quickly. And it chokes out native species by forming dense colonies that don’t allow anything else to survive in the invaded habitat. This negatively impacts wildlife, including approximately 20 per cent of Ontario’s species at risk.
A significant undertaking, called the Lambton Shores Wetland Enhancement Project, is fighting back. The project covers 59 hectares (146 acres) along the Lake Huron shoreline. A Provincially Significant wetland, the area is used by hunters, fishermen, bird watchers, hikers and local cottagers. Our goal of controlling invasive Phragmites is only possible through the support of people like you who believe in protecting our land, water and wildlife.
