Lambton Shores Phragmites Community Group

Town: Lambton Shores

Ontario Nature Region: Carolinian West

In 2009, members of the Port Franks Beach Homeowners Association and the Windsor Park Association became concerned when monoculture stands of non-native invasive Phragmites australis (European Common Reed) appeared on the Port Franks beach and in the watersheds flowing to Lake Huron (Ausable River and Mud Creek). The Lambton Shores Phragmites Community Group (LSPCG) was created as a result of this concern.

A group of dedicated volunteers, LSPCG is committed to working together with other organizations and private landowners to restore wetland habitat and beaches and control invasive Phragmites. As of October 2014, control efforts have been initiated on over 200 acres in Lambton Shores.

Members of Council for the Municipality of Lambton Shores and staff have supported our efforts, including our request to hire a wetland ecologist to create a Management Plan for the Municipality and have provided partial funding for our remediation projects and other initiatives. The Management Plan can be viewed at: www.lambtonshores.ca.
