Idaho and the West are fighting a war that may be unwinnable. Invaders with strange sounding names -- leafy spurge, dalmatian toadflax, tansy ragwort -- are costing Americans billions of dollars each year, and the end is nowhere in sight.
The BLM estimates that, here in the West, we lose three thousand acres a day to invasive species, like rush skeletonweed, spotted knapweed, and yellow starthistle. These outlaw species are attacking us where we work…where we play…on land…and in the water.
They will change the way we work and play in the outdoors.
