Invasive plant (garlic mustard) pull

Join the volunteer community effort at Rocky River's Elmwood Park to round up the invasive Garlic Mustard weed. This alien species is spreading through our natural areas and competing for space and nutrients with the native spring wildflowers. Hand pulling before the seeds are set is necessary to control the spread of Garlic Mustard and must be continued each year until the seed bank is depleted. Bring garden gloves and a friend and join us at the trail head behind the baseball fields to receive instructions and coordinate efforts.

Call Chris Weiss Pfeil 440-356-2324 for more information.
