Webinar – Controlling Invasive Phragmites: Light at the end of the tunnel
April 5, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
This presentation provides background information on Canada’s worst invasive plant, why it is such a concern and control methods used in sensitive habitats. It will also highlight successful control programs underway throughout Ontario and a Green Shovels Coalition lead plan toward implementing a province-wide control program.
This webinar will be presented by Janice Gilbert. Janice is a wetland ecologist with a PhD from Ohio State University and over 25 years of experience researching and assessing these invaluable ecosystems. She began investigating invasive Phragmites impacts on wetlands and appropriate control methods in 2007. Since that time, she has been a lead author on over 150 reports and presentations and is a contributor on a number of guiding documents. She is a founder and Co-Chair of the Ontario Phragmites Working Group and an advisor on two binational programs the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative, and the Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework, which are both operated under the US Geological Service and supported by the Great Lakes Commission. Janice is currently the Executive Director of the Invasive Phragmites Control Centre, a not-for-profit entity she founded to provide effective and environmentally responsible management of Canada’s worst invasive plant.
