Technical Working Group

PAMF was developed by a Core Science Team composed of researchers and staff at the USGS, University of Georgia, and the Great Lakes Commission. The Core Science Team worked closely with a Technical Working Group (TWG), which was made up of 12 experts in Phragmites management representing different stakeholder values, priorities, and perspectives.  Involving the TWG at an early stage ensured that the final framework reflected the needs and objectives of end-users. Members of the TWG remain involved in PAMF today.  Although their roles have changed, these individuals continue to volunteer their time and offer their advice and expertise.  PAMF could not exist without them.

Year One Participants

In 2017, the individuals listed below worked with PAMF staff to complete in-field trials of the program.
