The Lunch Bunch is not about to be upstaged.  You be the judge.

Since we knew our program was going to cover "Invasive Species" members came prepared to confront Amy Jewitt with their invasive "cuttings".  Amy oversees a database listing invasive species information for the PA Natural Heritage Program and the Western PA Conservancy
