Grand Traverse County Garlic Mustard Workbee

May 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Northwest Michigan Invasive Species Network (ISN) as we remove garlic mustard this spring!

Garlic mustard was originally introduced as a food source, but quickly spread into our natural areas, including high-quality woodlands. Its tendency to overcrowd native plant species affects habitats for insects and therefore, birds and mammals. Fortunately, garlic mustard is relatively easy to remove!

To reduce waste going to landfills, ISN is partnering with Paperworks Studios to make a beautiful garlic mustard paper. Bring work gloves and water for the duration of the workbee, and stay after for a hot meal prepared with garlic mustard!

Age: All ages welcome

Registration: Register with Emily Cook at ecook@gtcd.org or 231.941.0960×20, or visit habitatmatters.org
