It's kinda weird that just as Michael and I and others were talking about
invasive exotics, I got a few informative emails on that topic. The first
was the one I posted earlier about Congressional legislation. Now here's
one that deals with invasive garden and ornamental plants. It has a
5-minute movie plus links to informational websites and reading materials.
Sorry it isn't about fish, but I hope you think the theme is relevant.

The "network" mentioned next isn't NANFA :-)


fyi - please share with your network

In addition to the excellent story Ketzel Levine did today about invasive
plants on NPR's Morning Edition, she compiled an informative web site,
citing the Conservancy both in the text of the site and in an accompanying
slide show.

Thanks again to Christina Campbell of the WO Library and John Randall,
invasive plant guru and for all of their work helping to
compile said background information on these plants gone bad.

If you have a minute, you may wish to check out Ketzel's web site, and/or
point others to it.
