Going Green Sustainability Lecture: “The Quiet Invasion” @ Houston Advanced Research Center
Jan 31 @ 7:00 pm


A Guide to the Invasive Species of Galveston Bay
And The Lower Galveston Bay Watershed

Most of us have heard at least something about the many invasive species
that have been introduced into, and are causing problems in, our region;
the Chinese tallow tree, the Muscovy duck, and Kudzu to name just a few.
But did you know that there are now more than 90 such species
occupying, or threatening the Galveston Bay Area?

Dr. Erin Kinney of HARC will be speaking about the Quiet Invasion, a guide to the invasive species of Galveston Bay and its watershed. She will also speak about the Quiet Invasion website ( and the new paperbacked field guide. Both have been updated to include all 95 species that are current invaders or threats to our area. Erin will introduce new features of the website, as well as the field guide, which will be available to those who attend the talk. She will also let us know what we as individuals and organizations can do to diminish the impact of this increasing threat.

We hope you’ll join us for this interesting and informative discussion.

This event is free and open to the public.
