Episode 33: Invasive Species

ODFW invasive species biologist, Rick Boatner discusses his long career fighting to keep Oregon free of some of the worst invasive species out there, including quagga and zebra mussels and feral hogs. It's not always easy, and it takes a lot of partnerships, including landowners, neighboring states and the federal government. But Rick's job is to worry about what's already made its way here, what's on its way and what may end up here someday.
