Is PAMF a good fit for you?

There are many outcomes and services provided by PAMF.  This program is designed to learn from a range of stakeholders implementing different Phragmites management techniques within a variety of site conditions.  Anyone managing Phragmites in the Great Lakes basin can join PAMF.

Participation in PAMF requires access to one or more locations where Phragmites is growing.  For this reason, PAMF participants are typically:

  • land managers working on public land
  • land conservancies
  • non-profit organizations
  • industry and businesses controlling Phragmites on private land
  • consulting companies providing Phragmites management services
  • roadside managers
  • teachers and students looking for learning opportunities and standardized data collection protocols
  • land owners interested in science-based treatment guidance


Anyone managing non-native Phragmites in the Great Lakes basin can participate in PAMF.  Through PAMF, experienced land managers can efficiently share their knowledge and expertise while those new to Phragmites management can find science-based support and guidance. Learn how to join PAMF here.
