Garlic Mustard Weed Pull at Wolf Oak Woods
May 12, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Come on out to join Pete for a Wolf Oak reunion and a worthy cause! Like last year, we’ll be teaming up with students from Woodstock High School to hand pull garlic mustard that is popping up amongst the spring ephemerals that are blooming. This is an aggressive biennial plant which means it completes its life cycle in 2 years and only sets seed during the second year. It likes to take advantage of the early growing season just like our spring ephemeral natives and which tend to get shaded out by their dense patches that can dominate an understory in a very short amount of time. It’s important to stay on top of GM management and with all those limber teens I’m positive we can ! Let’s meet in the parking lot and Pete will direct you to your quarry.
