How To Help

Invasive phragmites can spread to new areas when contaminated mud, gravel, water, soil and plant material are unknowingly moved by natural pathways, such as wind and water, and man-made pathways such as the horticultural trade, hiking, boating, fishing and through the use of different kinds of equipment.

It is much more costly to control invasive phragmites after their establishment and spread than it is to prevent their spread. The spread of Phragmites can be minimized significantly through things like gardening with non-invasive and native plants, following the idea of “Look Before You Leave”, and cleaning equipment before moving to a new site.
