May 9, 2017, Tuesday - Pull Garlic Mustard at the Minneapolis River Gorge Sand Flats

Time: 6 – 8 pm

Location: (Registrants will receive detailed directions to worksite)

Pull Garlic Mustard at the Minneapolis River Gorge Sand Flats

After a brief introduction and training, participants will proceed to the river gorge sand flats, known for their large sandy beaches and wonderful river-edge view. Working alongside Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff, volunteers will remove garlic mustard – an exotic plant invading many areas of the River Gorge and out-competing native plant species. Although a serious threat, garlic mustard is not only easy to identify, but quick to pull by hand. Volunteers will be pleased to see a dramatic difference in ground cover by the end of this event, improving both water quality and habitat diversity.
