The Purple Pages

The Purple Loosestrife Project, sponsored by Michigan State University, aims to control Purple loosestrife in Michigan (Lythrum salicaria) through the introduction of loosestrife-eating beetles from Europe. But rather than just focusing on applying biological controls, the PLP encourages public involvement through education and school-sponsored projects. Their site has many activities and lessons for the K-12 crowd, plus general information about the value of wetlands and the problems caused by Purple loosestrife invasion.
