Uh oh.... it's non-native!
First, survey your property to locate all non-native Phragmites. Contributing your findings to an invasive species occurrence database provides critical data on Phragmites distribution and helps create a landscape-scale understanding of its spread.
Report your findings to:
- Midwest – Midwest Invasive Species Information Network (MISIN) or EDDMapS Midwest
- New York – iMapInvasives
- Indiana – Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System (EDDMapS) a.k.a. ReportIN
- Ontario – Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System (EDDMapS)
Great! No action needed. Please let us know where this site is and we will add it to a native Phragmites database.
