Heidi Lent led her students through a large project that involved sketching and molding invasive species out of clay. The clay molds were then hung around an “invasive species tree” that held numerous clay figures. Heidi gathered seashells, beetle eaten wood, pine cones, and other materials to add to the tree display.
This tree is paired with the poem that Heidi wrote:
The aliens will take over;
Destroy the natural habitats;
The natives will die;
The aliens will thrive.
