  • 1. Native and Invasive Plants on Campus By: Lauren and Gabi
  • 2. What Are Invasive Plants? Plants brought here from another state or country Invasive plants could escape cultivation by their seeds.
  • 3. Why Are Invasive Plants Bad? They mature or grow faster than native plants, so they gain territory quicker. There are many croton plants on our campus. They were planted here because they spread quickly.
  • 4. Information About Invasive Plants Invasive plants are bad because: They grow faster than native plants. Invasive plants have competed with other plants, unlike native plants. When Invasive plants are brought, sometimes Invasive species come with them.
  • 5. Solutions on Getting Rid of Invasive Plants Have maintenance remove invasive plants, and replace with native plants. Dig out all of the roots, and make sure that there are no seeds on the ground.
  • 6. Wonders That We Still Have If the Strawberry Guava tree is successfully eradicated, what will the bugs do? Will they go for native plants that are similar to the Strawberry Guava tree? Will we be able to complete our plan in our 5th grade year? Who will continue our plan when we are in middle school?
