A Seed in Time
Read the article, Native plant growers throughout Hawai‘i replace IHOP’s “The Lorax” themed seed bookmarks with native plants, by the Maui Invasive Species Committee. This is a great example of the kind of quick action that can help prevent the introduction of a potentially invasive species. The relatively small cost of prevention can reduce or eliminate the enormous expense in time and money trying to control or remove an established invasive species population.
