April 16th Garlic Mustard Pull

Friends of the Shiawassee RivCALENDAR_-_garlic_mustard_flowers.jpger will be working to remove garlic mustard, an invasive plant, from woodlots at DeVries Nature Conservancy. To properly and permanently remove this plant, it is necessary to pull individual plants one at at time from the soil surface and dispose of them in a way they cannot regenerate - in a garbage bag and sent to a landfill.  

Garlic Mustard plants can be easily identified and their removal helps create better habitat for our native wildflowers and vegetation, such as bloodroot and trillium. Volunteers may even be lucky enough to spot some of these early wild flower blooms during their hunt for invasive species!

All volunteers are welcome to stay for a FREE LUNCH, compliments of our friends at DeVries Nature Conservancy!
