Elaine Ferrier – Great Lakes Commission

With the approval of an official Charter, the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative is moving forward on managing non-native Phragmites in the Great Lakes basin.

The Charter establishes the following vision and mission for the Collaborative:

Vision: Great Lakes wetland ecosystems and their services are not degraded by non-native Phragmites. Mission: Facilitate communication and collaboration that leads to research and effective management of non-native Phragmites within the Great Lakes region

The Collaborative is guided by the theory of Collective Impact, and approval of the Charter is a critical first step in developing a Common Agenda to tackle Phragmites in the Great Lakes basin.
