If you RSVP you will receive information about last minute changes or cancellations. You can also use the form at the bottom of the page to RSVP.

Garlic Mustard Pulls

Now a rite of spring, get out to enjoy the warm spring breezes while pulling garlic mustard. This invasive biennial degrades even healthy woodlands. Pulls last from 9 am to 12 pm, but will be cancelled if the weather is bad. It’s easy work and we provide refreshments.

  • Bear Creek Nature Park – 740 W. Snell Rd., 9 am to 12 pm. May 2 and 9, 2017
  • Blue Heron Environmental Area – 3320 N. Rochester Rd., 9 am – 12 pm. May 16 and 23, 2017

What to Bring

Please remember to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes suitable for uneven terrain.  Please dress for the weather and bring gloves if you have them. We provide tools, light snacks, water, and know-how. All minors must have a waiver signed by a guardian, and minors under 14 must be accompanied by a guardian.
