Garlic Mustard Season at the Core Arboretum

Dear volunteers,

Wow! Like other plants, garlic mustard seems to be in a big hurry this spring. I have seen a lot of big, healthy garlic mustard plants, some of which have already begun to flower. This means the effort to control garlic mustard in the Core Arboretum also needs to begin early. I hope some of you will be willing and able to help again this year. A little new blood wouldn't hurt, either ...

Please let me know what days of the week and times of day, if any, work best for you.

I anticipate getting after it beginning the week of April 8-14 and staying with it for a month. For personal and administrative reasons, I much prefer to work weekdays. We'll see how it goes. I could also schedule some weekday late afternoon/evening or Saturday sessions and hope to attract a few more volunteers.

Thanks for being who you are and doing what you do.
