  2016…….Phragmites Dig Schedule

WBPOA Phrag Buster Volunteers  and Tiny Township are once again planning our attack on Phragmites at Woodland Beach.  Phragmites are an invasive reed that is taking over our beaches, wetlands and ditches all over Ontario.

The preferred method is to cut at the base of the stalk below the first node and just below the surface of the sand.  All cut stalks, seed head and rhizomes (roots) must be removed from the site by placing them in yard waste bags to be disposed of at municipal composting site. Experts say this technique robs the plants of photosynthesis and slowly kills them.   Cutting must be done several years in succession before results will be seen.  From our first inspection this year it appears that growth is reduced in all areas targeted in 2014 and 2015.  

Please call your friends and neighbours, grab your water bottle, a sharp shovel, gloves and protective footwear. We hope you will join us when your calendar allows.
