Be part of the fight against invasive species as part of the SXSW Eco conference!
On October 4, Ms. Jessica Strickland, Invasive Species Program Manager at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and an elite team from the Wildflower Center will show volunteers how to identify and map invasive plant species along Waller Creek in Austin, Texas.
I’ll be part of this volunteer army too. Middle schoolers and teens are welcome, so if you can make it, join me, and I’ll lead a squad of kids to hunt down and map out these invasive species as part of the Wildflower Center teams.

Oh no. I hope we don’t run into my nemesis, The Giant Reed!
If so, we’ll be ready!
