2017 Georgian Bay Cuts for Invasive Phragmites

July 2017. With more than 8,000 km of shoreline, Georgian Bay is home to some of the Canada's most pristine coastal wetlands. Many creatures and organisms depend on these wetlands for life-sustaining activities like food and foraging, nurseries, spawning, shade, water treatment and shelter. This tenacious invasive plant, Phragmites australis subsp australis, grows quickly and densely into monocultures that threaten to reduce plant biodiversity, decrease habitat for endangered species, and damage the proper functioning of Georgian Bay's coastal wetlands. You can help fight this invasive! Volunteer for one of the cuts listed below. Read More

Tay takes on invasive Phragmites

Georgian Bay Forever (GBF) is proud to support the invasive Phragmites fighting efforts of Tay Township and the wonderful Tay volunteers. The community effort was initiated by Councillor Catherine Root and managed by Bryan Anderson, Manager of Parks, Recreation & Facilities. GBF provided a letter of support to the Township for their successful application to the Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program Grant application (Government of Ontario). The grant helped the Tay Township remove invasive Phragmites from 6 of the local Park/Waterfront areas. GBF helped by training staff and volunteers in the selective cut method. Read More
