Edible Invasives

Invasive species are a significant threat to global biodiversity and conservationists are constantly looking for new ways to manage their continued expansion into native ecosystems. While traditional methods to control invasive species have included mechanical and chemical strategies, in recent years there has been a growing movement to see if we can control invasive species by eating them. In this presentation we will learn about the history of eating invasive species and the merits and drawbacks of the strategy while getting to sample a few invasives of our own.
