We wanted to address the issue of declining biodiversity in our community. We noticed that Harkness Park, a community park located adjacent to our school, was overrun by invasive plants. Not only do these invasives harm native pollinators by crowding out the native plants which they rely on, they can promote the spread of dangerous invasive species. We are particularly concerned about the Spotted Lanternfly, an insect that has extremely negative impacts on the ecosystem. Because of this, we have constructed a project to remove the invasive plants in the park, and to bring back the population of native plants that once inhabited the area.
