INVASIVE SPECIES ALERTS!!
On August 29, 2019, the Medford Transcript published a news report about local environmentalist and graphic artist Ian Lippincott, also known as iNKY sTAINS, who recently released two illustrated Public Service Announcements (PSA) about two specific invasive species attacking the region.
Lippincott worked closely with Friends of the Fells botanical experts to create a successful pilot of invasive species PSAs, which later won a Melrose Cultural Council (MCC) grant award. Black Swallow-Wort and Oriental Bittersweet are two of his least favorite species.
