It’s spring, that time of year when plants are popping up from their long winter nap. And while we welcome the return of our beautiful spring ephemerals, we also face the return of the garlic mustard, a non-native invader of our woodlands that aggressively outcompetes many of our native wildflowers.
Join us the weekend of April 24-25 to help pull garlic mustard at two of Bur Oak Land Trust’s wooded properties:
Bags and buckets will be provided. Bring gloves and wear long pants and closed-toed shoes or boots. Poison ivy may be present on the properties.
Masks are required at the start of the event during orientation, but may be removed as volunteers spread out to remove garlic mustard as long as people stay 6 feet apart.
Plan to arrive a little early to park, make your way to the location, and check-in including signing a required volunteer waiver.
Rain dates will be the following weekend, May 1 and May 2 at the same times/locations.
