Description of the Event: 

Presentation - Ginny Wanty
MSU Extension - Master Naturalist Coordinator

Garlic Mustard is an invasive plant that's taking over our woodlands. It crowds out our
beautiful native wildflowers and endangers forests by preventing tree seedlings from
growing. And, none of our North American insects or wildlife eat it! Help the Montcalm
Area Master Gardener Association and MSU Extension Master Naturalists remove this
invader from the Flat River Trail, part of the Frederik Meijer Trail and keep our local
parks healthy. We'll be reporting the garlic mustard we remove as part of The
Stewardship Network's Garlic Mustard Challenge 2017 – a regional effort to remove
200,000 lbs. from local natural areas. This event is being held in conjunction with the
City of Greenville.

Event Notes: Please dress for the weather and the work! Where garlic mustard grows, we may also run into poison ivy and mosquitoes. Close-toed shoes or boots, long pants and long-sleeved shirts are highly recommended. Bring bug repellent and gardening gloves if you'd like! The Montcalm Area Master Gardener Association will provide water and snacks for all volunteers.
