2021 Invasive Phragmites Management. Georgian Bay Forever Report.

25 Georgian Bay Forever Phragmites Report 2021 Figure 26: Map of invasive Phragmites sites on Present Island in 2021. Quarry Island Table 11: Status of the 42 sites on Quarry Island. In September of 2021, truxors were brought to the northeast shoreline of Quarry Island to remove some of the invasive Phragmites that have begun to completely take over the coastline rapidly. We contracted the Invasive Phragmites Control Center (IPCC) for 2 days of work, of which we had 1 truxor that removed 2 extremely large, dense patches. As seen in some of the images below, there is still quite a bit of treatment that needs to be done at Quarry Island next year. We hope to have the IPCC come once again to deploy their truxors.
