Invasive species are a widespread problem and significant resources are directed at controlling them. Frequently, control efforts are implemented independently and lack coordination on a larger scale. These disjointed efforts can lead to variable treatment outcomes and limited landscape-wide progress. To maximize management efforts targeting invasive Phragmites across the Great Lakes Basin, the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative launched the Phragmites Adaptive Management Framework (PAMF). This unique program combines participatory science with adaptive management, allowing mangers at all levels to contribute to and benefit from Phragmites management data generated basin-wide. PAMF applies a systematic approach to learning from management actions to reduce uncertainty of management outcomes. This presentation will cover the benefits of an adaptive management approach that incorporates participatory learning and share lessons learned throughout PAMF’s development and implementation.
