Invasive Species Removal at Ludington State Park

Join Emily Leslie, DNR Natural Resource Steward, on Sunday, October 15 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for an invasive species pull in the Ludington State Park.

Meet at the small parking area at the intersection of Piney Ridge Road and 19th Street, which is just north of the Hobby Crest Resort.

Join in the effort to oust Japanese barberry from the coastal dune system!  This invasive plant has found its way into our natural areas and threatens to displace the forest understory. No experience is necessary, and training and tools will be provided. Long sleeves and long pants are recommended to protect against thorns.

For more information or to register contact Emily at (517) 242-8760 LeslieE1@michigan.gov.

Invasive Species Removal at Ludington State Park

Help protect the park from invasive plants like garlic mustard and spotted knapweed! We’ll cover the basic plant identification and then pull plants.

Meet at the Amphitheater Parking Lot.

Long sleeve shirts, long pants and closed-toed shoes are highly recommended. Work gloves will be provided, but if you have a favorite pair of work/gardening gloves you may want to bring them. Wearing a hat/bug spray and bringing drinking water is a good idea.
