Garlic Mustard Pull-a-thon

May 24, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

Help Riveredge control garlic mustard and Dame’s rocket throughout the sanctuary. In partnership with the Southeastern Wisconsin Invasive Species Consortium, the Pull-a-thon is a competition, a fundraiser, and a way for people to join together and have a positive impact on their environment. Riveredge was 2016’s competition winner, so we’ll need your help to return the trophy to Riveredge again this year!

Adults and families (with children aged 10 and up) are encouraged to participate. Come for either part or the entire time. Participants should wear long sleeves, non-synthetic pants, boots/shoes that can get dirty, good-fitting gloves, and a hat. We will provide water but please bring a water container for refilling.

Schedule-
9:00-9:15      Volunteers gather in the Main Center
9:15-9:30      Hike to project site (mouth of Riveredge creek)
9:30-12:00    Pull
