Today we were fortunate enough to have Cornell student, David Zielnicki in to share his knowledge of invasive plants and animals. You guys impressed me with what you already knew. I realized part-way through the day that last year's trip to Lime Hollow probably helped you collect that previous knowledge. I hope everyone enjoyed today's class. Being educated and aware of this problem will help limit the spread in the future. We have more speakers coming this month to talk about bird migrations, turtles, and endangered species.

And, if they know of it, maybe they'll be part of the solution to the problem of invasive plants. We have bamboo and wild mustard, is it, on our property and they are both so not what we want. In the lake there are carp that were introduced at the turn of the 20th century and now they are a problem. You know the joke?
Catch a carp, nail it to a board, grill it and then throw the carp away and eat the board!
