GBF 2019 Phrag Report

14 Other Township of Georgian Bay areas: South of Honey Harbour has seen minimal attention in previous years. In 2019 this entire area was mapped and has been marked a high priority for 2020. It is important to have an impact on this area while the stands are still manageable and small and before they get large and take double the time and resources. Potato Island: Two community cuts were hosted between Potato Island and Green Island, the mouth of the Trent Severn Waterways. An active community member invited GBF to participate. The area was mapped and 12 stands were controlled. It is crucial these 12 stands are cut in 2020, as well as the other 34 stands. Boat traffic is extremely high in this area and is a linear highway for invasive species.
