The Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative is a network of agencies, organizations and citizens who are engaged in non-native Phragmites in some way, including management, research and communication. The Collaborative was established to reduce the spread and occurrence of Phragmites in the Great Lakes basin by improving management and research and enhancing communication and collaboration. The Collaborative also serves as a resource center for information on Phragmites biology, management, and research. We are led by a diverse Advisory Committee and are organized according to the principles of Collective Impact. We invite you to participate in the Collaborative by joining webinars, reading and commenting on blog posts, joining our listserv or contacting us!
