Willapa Bay in trouble

Hi, Fritzi… I’ll make an effort to attend this meeting. I don’t support the herbicide dispersal in this case (& in most other cases, either)… and would prefer a more site-specific & labor-intensive control program, where warranted.

This may be of interest to you, if it’s new info: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6087547.html
It has to do with a “product” of spartina, which acts against certain halogenated hydrocarbon compounds. While I don’t totally support the application of the patent (eg a vehicle for genetic engineering), the quality of the spartina in this case makes it a potentially valuable ally against chemical pollution of a particularly nasty realm of chemical agents. chow ^..^
