The Craig Fahle Show

What To Do About Invasive Species in the Garden

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Invasive species can sometimes be beautiful plants but when they take root in a new environment, they tend to wreak havoc on the ecosystem. Phragmites is one invasive species that is running out of control along Michigan shorelines.

Craig speaks with Bob Williams, director of Stewart Farm Ecology Center at Harsens Island and Founder of Phragmites.org. and John DeLisle, VP of Royal Oak Nature Society, president of the Southeast Michigan WildOnes Chapter and Certified pesticide applicator. They discuss Phragmites and other invasive species that are plaguing land owners. If you want more information on how to control Phragmites, there is an upcoming workshop or check out any of these links: A Booklet with information...Midwest Invasive Species Information Network...Michigan Natural Features Inventory. On Sept. 6th there is also a webinar.
