May 12, 2018, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Shorewood Nature Preserve
An army of aliens, reeking of garlic has been creeping through our Shorewood Nature Preserve. This army is so plentiful, it is killing off native wildflowers and competing for resources. The name of this pungent foe is garlic mustard.
Take the time to help push back this invasive plant. Join the Conservation Committee on May 12 to pull garlic mustard and help restore the Preserve, while viewing many species of wildflowers and enjoying this wonderful, underappreciated Shorewood amenity.
Also, consider capturing some of this noxious weed for yourself in order to make a delicious pesto!
Get a free pesto sample and take home a recipe to make your own. See you at the entrance to the Shorewood Nature Preserve, between Menlo and Newton on Lake Drive.
Long pants and gloves are recommended.
