Bethesda couple Seth Goldstein and Paula Stone started building sculptures out of the invasive Oriental Bittersweet vine in 2008. The sculptures have been exhibited at Brookside Gardens and the Nature Conservancy headquarters. (Alexandra Garcia/The Washington Post)

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky

I spent a lot of time trying to eliminate Asian bittersweet vine working in Rock Creek National Park in Washington, D.C. summer 1999. Not to mention Asian porcelain berry vine, ailanthus trees, bamboo, multi-flora rose, some kudzu, and lots of others.
