New Children’s Book About NNIS

I just wanted to share information about a new children’s book written by the Potomac Highlands CWPMA, “The Pests that Girdle the Home of Tucker the Turtle.”   The star of the book is Tucker, an Eastern box turtle who was born and raised in WV.  Through the telling of his story, Tucker shares the changes that he has seen as non-native invasive species have spread across his home. Spring wildflowers are disappearing, trees like native hemlocks are dying, and many strange, new critters have taken up residence.  Tucker shares his experiences with fifteen different invasive species including insects, plants, and even a fish!

I am also attaching a few pages from the book for your information: Tucker_Snippet.  More information can be found on the CWPMA’s Website at http://www.phcwpma.org/tucker.
