If you see Purple Loosestrife (photo, left),
pull it up right away. Best time to get rid of this plant is late June,
July and early August, before the plant has gone to seed. Put the plant
pieces in plastic bags. Tell others about purple loosestrife. It
destroys native plants, animals and wetlands. Read labels before you buy
any seed packages. You'll find purple loosestrife seeds in some
wildflower seed mixes. Don't buy them!
Did you know? Monarch butterflies taste bad to birds because when they were caterpillars they ate milkweed.
