Garlic Mustard Pull Workdays

Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) and dame’s rocket (Hesperis matronalis) spread aggressively through natural areas, pushing out the native plants that wildlife need.  We need your help to remove these invasive plants from our parks! Pulls last from 9 am to 12 pm, but will be cancelled if weather is bad. It’s easy work and we provide tools and refreshments.
