The Wetlands Initiative asks volunteers to help pull non-native garlic mustard from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 17 at the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge at Hennepin & Hopper Lakes.

Garlic mustard crowds out native plants and destroys healthy biodiversity in the refuge’s wooded seep area, a rare habitat and an Illinois Nature Preserve.

No experience is necessary. Bring a water bottle and a picnic lunch. Garlic mustard salsa will be served. Wear appropriate clothing for fieldwork (long pants, closed-toe shoes). Children 16 or younger must be accompanied by parents or other chaperones.

The refuge is on the east side of the Illinois River south of Hennepin. Meet at the parking lot by the boat dock, 1/4 mile past the observation tower. E-mail if you plan to attend.
