To the editor:
I was glad to see that efforts are being made to bring increased awareness to the phragmite infestation issue. Kudos to the Great Marsh Revitalization Task Force for taking on this issue.
As a resident of the Joppa neighborhood for over 10 years, I have witnessed amazingly swift changes in the area from Joppa Park to Plum Island during weekend walks. In the last two years, the view of the marsh from Water Street is now partially obscured by phragmites. Although I miss the view, I am more concerned about the negative impact on waterfowl and fish.
I support whatever measures are taken to lessen, if not remedy, the problem. And I want to know more about what I can do to help.
