Let's Pull Together 2008 ~ Part One - Eva Varga

June 5, 20081

Our Roots & Shoots group will be participating in the state-wide Let’s Pull Together campaign this month. Invasive species have always been a favorite topic of mine. When I was teaching, I wrote several grants to develop an “Alien Invaders” curriculum and get my students involved in the eradication/prevention of invasives.

In anticipation of our upcoming endeavor, I thought I’d share a list of 13 Invasive Species that are changing the Oregon landscape. The graphic below describes how unwanted plants and animals are dispersed. Click on it to enlarge.

I encourage you to become familiar with the invasive animals and plants in your area and to do your part to prevent further distribution.

    I think our biggest invader is kudzu. It’s EVERYWHERE! It will actually completely cover buildings, cars, grow all the way up & over telephone poles, and it’s nearly impossible to kill!
