Pull garlic mustard at the Sand Flats
Volunteers displaying their freshly pulled garlic mustard bouquets.
After a brief introduction and training, we will proceed to the river gorge sand flats, known for their large sandy beaches and wonderful river-edge view. Working alongside FMR staff, volunteers will remove garlic mustard – an exotic plant invading many areas of the river gorge and outcompeting native plant species.
Although a serious threat, garlic mustard is not only easy to identify but quick to pull by hand. Volunteers will be pleased to see a dramatic difference in ground cover by the end of this event – improving both water quality and wildlife habitat.
As always, we'll provide any necessary tools and training. All are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required.
