Join us on Thursday, May 23 from 6-8 pm for an evening garlic mustard pull in the oak woodlands bordering the Vermillion River, a cold prairie stream in the heart of Dakota County and a major tributary of the Mississippi River.
After a brief introduction and training, volunteers will help protect important members of the native plant community by removing the extremely invasive plant garlic mustard. Although a serious threat, garlic mustard is not only easy to identify but quick to pull by hand, resulting in very visible progress over the course of this event. Volunteers may also be asked to assist with other restoration tasks as needed.
All are welcome, however, capacity is limited and registration required. All supplies and training will be provided and volunteers will work closely with Friends of the Mississippi River (FMR) staff. This event is part of the Vermillion Stewards program, helping Vermillion River Watershed residents learn about the local watershed while working to protect and enhance its unique natural resources.
