Invasive Plant Removal

Instead of pulling Garlic Mustard we encourage you to attend our Zoom presentation, Mr. Natural’s Organic Gardening for the Homeowner.

Depending on Garlic Mustard growth, we may meet on Wednesday, April 28 at 6:30 pm to pull this aggressive plant, more information to follow.

Help treat and remove a variety of invasive plant species at Cartier Park. We’ll be pulling Garlic Mustard. A discussion to help identify these plants will take place before we start. Meet at the dog park by at the end of Rath Ave. Bring water, gloves and wear long pants, long sleeved shirt and closed toed shoes. Event will be held in fair weather, and sometimes wraps up early, depending on site conditions.
