This Eurasian subspecies of Phragmites may be on your shore. Take notice and report it to me, Mike White, or the Township of Bois Blanc. It has been found at the West End and along the shores of Section 17. Learn how to recognize it, and if it is found in a remote area, please report it. I would like to thank Beaver Island for this video.

Beaver Island reduced their Phragmites from 27 acres down to half and acre in about five years.
