- Ambler, PA
The House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee met with Governor's Invasive Species Council to hold a joint hearing on invasive species in Pennsylvania at Temple University's Ambler Campus.The United States is an unfortunate worldwide leader in the spread and propagation of invasive species, including invasive plants, insects and birds. In Pennsylvania, these species outcompete native species, diminishing our natural biodiversity and negatively changing our environment. The cost to manage these invasive species grows each and every year, adversely affecting our Commonwealth both ecologically and economically.
