Garlic Mustard Pull @ Cherokee Marsh

May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Make room for native wildflowers by helping pull garlic mustard, an aggressive plant that is native to Europe but crowds out our native wildflowers. No experience needed.We’ll show you what to look for and how to pull. We’ll provide bags, gloves, and snacks. Wear closed-toed shoes, long pants recommended. Wear or bring a long-sleeved shirt. Bring drinking water. This event will take place at the MENDOTA UNIT of Cherokee Marsh Conservation Park. We will meet at: Meadow Ridge Park, 4002 Meadow Valley Dr. Directions: Heading north from downtown Madison on Northport Dr/HWY 113, just past Warner Park, turn left onto Troy Dr. In about 1.25 mile, Troy Dr curves right and becomes Green Ave. Turn left onto Meadow Ridge Ln and follow it to the end at Meadow Valley Dr. Park on the street. We’ll hike about 1/4 mile to the work site, north of Sauthoff Rd.

Registration is helpful but not required. To register or if you have questions, contact Jan at janaxelson@gmail.com or (608) 215-0426. We will cancel if raining hard or threat of thunderstorms; call or email if uncertain. Learn about garlic mustard https://sewisc.org/invasives/invasive-plants/65-garlic-mustard
