Latitude and Longitude
Current or Future Monitoring Details
Grand Bend is a lakeside community largely dependent on tourism involving the beach and boating. Phragmites growth has not yet proliferated to the point of impeding this.
Challenges and/or Lessons Learned
Proactive work to try and eradicate phragmites in the entire Grand Bend area to ensure the community remains “phrag-free” and avoid huge problems being faced by nearby communities where phragmites growth is affecting the lives of residents.
