HELP NEEDED PULLING GARLIC MUSTARD
Pasted Graphic 1

Have you seen an area that garlic mustard has taken over? It is shocking how thick and extensive the plants can be. They can totally crowd out our native plants and spring ephemerals. The resulting loss of biodiversity affects the insects, birds and other animals. Doing nothing is not an option.
Consider joining with some other volunteers this spring in the effort to control garlic mustard. No experience is necessary. This is a perfect opportunity to learn to identify the plant and how to help control it. Each session will held from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Bring garden gloves. Cancelled in the event of rain. For more info - contact 922-7931 or dianahbeck@gmail.com
