Baby’s Breath Workbee

June 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Elberta Beach, Benzie County MI United States + Google Map
ISN 2

Join 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…
