Join the Friends of Cherokee Marsh and help bundle, cut, and treat Phragmites (giant reed grass), which is invading the rich wetlands of the Cherokee Marsh State Natural Area. Phragmites spreads quickly through a network of underground and aboveground stems, choking out native vegetation. This project will stop its spread and allow native sedges, grasses, and flowers to persist. The workday runs from 9am-12pm
