Invasives

My friend Karin is a wetlands specialist who teaches in Utah and researches phragmites, an incredibly invasive plant that is choking wetlands across the country. I find invasive species fascinating albeit frightening, and am glad that people as hardworking and smart as Karin are on the task (in the video, you'll see the plants - I remember seas of them while riding the train from NY to NJ).
