Join us in celebrating National Trails Day at a Garlic Mustard Pull Stewardship Workday along the Paint Creek Trail on Saturday, June 4, 2016. Garlic mustard is a tall, spindly, bright green plant that can be seen growing along roads, easements and within woodlands from whenever the snow melts through late June and early July. It’s an invasive plant, which means it’s not from our region and that it out-competes our native wildflowers and tree seedlings. None of our native animals or insects eat it, because they didn’t evolve with each other and their systems aren’t designed for it. We’re looking for volunteers that can give us a couple of hours of time. We will have Garlic Mustard Pull sites in Rochester, Rochester Hills, Oakland Township, and Orion Township.
When: Saturday, June 4, 2016—Sign in at 9:00am, event runs from 9:30am-1:00pm
Who: All ages are welcome!
Where: Meet at the Paint Creek Cider Mill, 4480 Orion Road, Rochester, 48306
What: Groups will be shown how to pull and bag Garlic Mustard. All supplies and instruction will be provided.
Bonus: Lunch and T-Shirt will be provided for all participants!
