Well, it’s nature, so…

This actually came from a parent, not a student.

Parent: Why do you have poison ivy here?

Me: Poison ivy?

Parent: Yeah, my son is really allergic. Why would you have it here?

Me: Well, this is a nature center and it’s a native plant. We don’t “have” it. It just grows here naturally. 

Parent: Wouldn’t you want to get rid of it?

Me: It’s impossible to get rid of all the poison ivy in the entire center. We clear the trails of it but it will always grow back.

Parent: That doesn’t sound good.

Me: Well, it’s nature, so… That’s just the way it works.
