Scourge of the wild: Garlic mustard

HENNEPIN — The Wetlands Initiative is looking for volunteers for a work day of pulling invasive garlic mustard plants at 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, May 18 at Dixon Waterfowl Refuge at Hennepin and Hopper Lakes in rural Hennepin.

No experience is necessary — the ecologist will train volunteers. Participants should bring a water bottle. A barbecue picnic lunch featuring garlic mustard salsa will be provided.

Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing for fieldwork. Children 16 years old or younger must be accompanied by parents or other chaperones. Volunteers should meet at the parking lot by the boat dock, which is ¼ mile past the Nolan Observation Tower. Volunteers should email twi@wetlands-initiative.org if they plan to attend.
