Garlic Mustard Pull at Mosquito Creek Preserve

Ring in Earth Month by joining TNC staff for a satisfying morning of pulling garlic mustard at our Mosquito Creek Glade in Harrison County. Don’t worry, there’s only a normal amount of mosquitos in the area! Garlic mustard flowers in the early spring, and is a prolific spreader. Highly invasive, it’s lucky this plant is so easy to pull. Together, we’ll work to locate, identify, and remove this harmful plant from the area.


This event is very family friendly, and families with youth of all ages are welcome to attend. We’ll meet at 12505 Sunset Strip Road, Laconia, IN 47135 before heading out into the glade to get our hands muddy. All tools provided. Please come prepared with close-toed shoes, long pants, and weather appropriate layers.


Please RSVP here so we can best prepare for the day: Harrison County Garlic Mustard Pull.


Want more time in nature? Pack a picnic lunch and stay for the guided hike afterwards!


Note: This event is at 9am EST.
