Managing non-native Phragmites is a challenge, even for seasoned land managers. Different sites and situations require different actions and these actions occur in the broader context of neighbors, partnership agreements, politicians, budgets, and staff. These case studies are here to help you in all of your Phragmites work, from prioritization and planning to monitoring and data integration. Here, you have access to specific details from a range of projects including example materials and resources. See how others prioritize their management, use a landowner-agreement letter as a template for your own, and learn how others use monitoring to plan for the next year and show progress to their funders.

Each case study focuses on one particular management group and is divided into best practice sections, such as Prioritization or Outreach.
