Go Natives!

Document Actions
Thanks so much for the recent cover article on native vs. exotic plant species (HCN, 5/12/03: Planting time). The author effectively described ways that invasive grasses damage ecosystems — very well explained for the lay reader. And I love the positive side that the article focused on. I didn’t realize how many of the exotics are still being used today in revegetation projects. It’s good to know that some people are working hard to change this. The article was timely, as here in southern Utah, we are overrun this spring with lush fields of green — fields of invasives that will soon dry up into a tinderbox.

A continued great job.
