Help restore native wildlife habitat by removing invasive alien species at the Wye Marsh this summer. Join the Stewardship team to learn how to safely remove invasive plants from the area.
Invasive Phragmites is a perennial grass that has been damaging ecosystems in Ontario for decades. This alien species takes over shorelines and affects the growth of native plans and the habitat and/ or food supply of many different species.
