Garlic Mustard Pulling Workdays: We Need Your Help!

    May 04, 2017, 04:13 PM

    Hey all,

    Garlic mustard is an invasive plant that is just getting established in Blue Mound State Park. We need your help to kick them out!  As trail users, biker and hikers are a big factor in this weed getting spread around. Join Members of CORP and Friends of Blue Mounds at our Garlic Mustard Control Workdays and come ready to pull, pull, pull! As a bonus: Overload should be open and ready to ride before or after the workday (on May 7th anyway)! Dress in sturdy boots and long pants, and we'd recommend long sleeves and light work gloves. Bring water and a snack. We’ll meet out front of the Friends Shelter at the north end of the pool parking lot.

    Blue Mound Garlic Mustard Workday Schedule 2017:

       May 7th, 1pm
       May 20th, 1pm*
       June 10th, 11am

    *Note that there is a trail workday at Blue Mound at 9am on the 20th, and we encourage all CORP members to help with that workday first! But, if for some reason you can't make it to the morning workday, we sure could use the help pulling garlic mustard in the afternoon.
