Description

Join Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff and volunteers for a lovely spring morning removing garlic mustard from the recently protected William H. Houlton Conservation Area (a.k.a. Houlton Farm) on Saturday, May 5, from 9-11am. 


FMR staff and ecologists will provide a brief introduction to the site and an overview on how to identify and pull the invasive plants we'll be targeting. By removing these species we will be making way for important native plants that have been crowded out by these aggressive invaders.


All are welcome, and as always, all training, gloves, and necessary tools will be provided. However, registration is required and capacity is limited.
