Purple loosestrife is a European perennial plant that was introduced into the New World almost two centuries ago. It is found from coast to coast in North America and is considered a serious weed of wetlands. This is the story of getting the public involved in a team approach that includes schools, landowners and managers, who collect, rear and redistribute the introduced biological control agents in a classical biological control approach for this invasive weed.
