Phragmites, or European Common Reed, are an exotic invasive species which threaten the biodiversity of the Fitch bay wetlands of Lake Memphremagog. MCI has been working with volunteers since 2017 to control this exotic invasive plant to prevent it from taking over the Fitch bay wetlands. Although the control efforts of previous years have provided excellent results, there is still more to be done!
Thank you for your help in protecting Lake Memphremagog!
In collaboration with the municipality of the Canton of Stanstead.
