Garlic Mustard Pledge-to-Pull at Crosby Park

May 1, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Enjoy the beauty of early spring at a riverside park while helping protect native plants by removing invasive garlic mustard, which is easy to identify and pull out by hand!

Participants will receive a brief introduction to this beautiful park and a quick training on removing garlic mustard. We request that all volunteers participating in this event sign a Pledge-to-Pull, committing to remove garlic mustard in this area of Crosby Park for a total of eight hours in the following weeks. Volunteers will receive a small card certifying their participation in the training and granting permission to independently perform this volunteer service in this special area, part of the City of St. Paul park system and the Mississippi National Park. Thanks to volunteer efforts such as these, we’ve been able to see steady improvement in the ephemeral patch, and have even
expanded the volunteer restoration work-areas to include the Crosby lakeshore!

More information is available at our webpage.

Preregistration is required for this event. To do so, please contact FMR Event Registrar Lindsay Hefferan at lhefferan@fmr.org or 651-222-2193 x24.
