High School Class Monitors Invasive Species

Some high school students from Scituate, Rhode Island are focusing on invasive plant species in their area. Their goal is to raise awareness about the impact on the local environment of these plants. They are posting their findings on their blog so you can follow along to what they are finding. Scituate is located west of Providence (Google Map) and it will be interesting to see if they see any new plants moving in or existing plants patterns changing as a result of climate change. I really don't know what the impact of climate change is in Rhode Island but I'm sure these students will figure it out.
