The Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework (PAMF), co-developed by GLSC and the Great Lakes Commission, has begun a new round of trainings for land managers that are actively controlling Phragmites and are interested in participating in this collective learning effort. PAMF is a program of the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative and was formed to address uncertainties in Phragmites management activities. More specifically, this program uses adaptive management principles and a citizen science-style approach to evaluate which combination of management actions strikes the best balance between effectiveness and efficiency. At these trainings, prospective participants learn about the program, what their participation looks like, and how to collect and report data regarding their Phragmites infestation and the management actions they implemented. The core science team will be leading trainings around the Great Lakes basin including Centreville, MI; Rochester, MI; Chicago, IL; Plymouth, WI; Moreland Hills, OH; and Erie, PA. Additional trainings are being discussed in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Minnesota.
