Saturday May 30: Garlic Mustard pull at Tiny Marsh
Volunteers work on Garlic Mustard control at Tiny Marsh
From MTM Conservation Association
Weeding Garlic Mustard is the perfect social distancing volunteer job, with every one able to stay well apart – and enjoy the great outdoors. Join us at Tiny Marsh, northwest of Elmvale, on Saturday May 30, 9 am to noon.
Garlic Mustard is an invasive weed – where it takes over, no wildflowers grow, and natural regeneration of native trees and shrubs is limited.
In just three hours, one person can clear a surprisingly large area! If you feel like doing only two hours, that’s fine too! We appreciate every contribution.
Park in front of the Nature Centre at 500 Flos-Tiny Townline west of County Rd. 6 and follow the signs to the field behind the shed at the west end of the parking lot. This is a field where volunteers have planted native pollinator plants, which are doing nicely, but still need help in the fight against Garlic Mustard.
All parking lots are now open. Wear long sleeves, long pants, closed footwear and bug spray. For more information, phone 705-322-2545.
