Wolf Oak Woods – Let’s Pull Garlic Mustard
May 13, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Join site steward Pete for a wonderful Wolf Oak reunion! Rather than our typical brushing workday we’ll be hand pulling garlic mustard that is popping up amongst the spring ephemerals that are blooming.
Garlic mustard 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 we can use all the hands we can get! Let’s meet in the parking lot and Pete will direct you to your quarry.
