Baby’s Breath Workbee

July 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

FREE
ISN 4

Join the Invasive Species Network (ISN) and the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy as we work to remove invasive baby’s breath from Elberta Beach in Benzie County! Spreading easily over northwest Michigan’s beaches and dunes, baby’s breath crowds out native plants and degrades important habitat. We need your help to restore Elberta Beach back to a diverse, healthy landscape! With a deep taproot, removal is hard work but extremely rewarding. Shovels and other tools will be provided but please bring your own work gloves to protect your hands while using shovels. Long pants are recommended as there is some poison ivy on the beach.  We will meet at Elberta Beach parking lot.  Water and other refreshments will be provided.

Feel free to join us at one or all of the following dates!

  • Thursday, May 31 – 10:00am-12:00pm
  • Thursday, June 7 – 10:00am-12:00pm
