Eat the Invaders Dinner

Category: Events

Invasive species present real problems for the native plants and animals we rely on for our ecosystem to thrive. Wild boars are ravaging Texas. Alliaria petiolata (garlic mustard) is choking out native plants in Vermont. Northeastern coastlines are plagued with invasive green crabs that eat up our native clams and mussels. But there's good news - they're all delicious! That's a solution Joe Roman, conservation biologist, author, and researcher at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at the University of Vermont wants everyone to explore. Not only will eating invasives help alleviate some of their negative effects, but the way to the mind (as well as the heart) is often through the stomach and he's hoping that finding invasives on the plate will help spark conversation and awareness.
