Commentary

Thank you for submitting this report, Molly. I hope that by making it part of this public database we can help raise more awareness and support some action. I agree it would be valuable to engage the students in LCC as part of a learning and removal effort. I would be happy to help support an event that you suggest - that engages students in learning and also helps to remove an invasive species that is compromising the educational forest behind LCC. Sincere thanks again for this report!
