Phragmites – Hiding in Plain Sight

The Chisago Lakes Coalition of Lake Associations (CLCLA) is concerned with the explosion of non-native Phragmites (Phragmites australis) along our area lakes shorelines. We will be hosting a meeting of stakeholders from local governmental entities, Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center and area Lake Associations to develop an effective management plan to deal with this invasion.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, October 25th from 3:00 to 4:30 at the Chisago Lake Township Hall at 12400 316th Street, Lindstrom, MN. MAISRC Phragmites Photo

Since multiple years of treatment will be needed to achieve effective control of non-native Phragmites, we hope to slow the growth before it overtakes our shorelines and roadside ditches. But we can’t do it without your help. Please join us to stop the spread!
