Art from invasive species creates conversations about conservation
June 7, 2019

Amid the food trucks and the stands hawking arts and crafts at a street fair in Detroit Lakes last week, Anna Haglin had an unusual pitch. “Hi,” she called to passersby. “Do you want to make paper?”
Haglin is standing next to a mobile paper making studio, a small trailer that supports a flat workspace. Haglin used her hands to mix a gelatinous gray pulp into a plastic tub half full of water. She’s an experienced paper maker, turning fibers mixed with water into paper by collecting the fibers on a screen dipped in the mixture.

But this paper is different: She’s making it out of an invasive plant, reed canary grass, a common invader in Minnesota wetlands. “This stuff I picked in Moorhead near the Red River,” explains Haglin. “It grows everywhere, hence the invasive part. It’s really hard to get rid of.”
