Project Description: Come out and spend a morning in the park working with staff to remove invasive garlic mustard plants from important forest habitat! Garlic mustard, which is not native to Delaware, poses a severe threat to forested understories where it can out-compete native wildflowers and other important plants. Volunteers and staff will be working along trails, pulling and bagging the garlic mustard to help enhance the forest habitat and plant diversity in the park.
The garlic mustard pull is being coordinated by the Delaware Invasive Species Council and hosted by the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation's Lums Pond State Park.
Age requirement: Volunteers under the age of 18 must provide a signed parental consent form.
What to Bring/Wear: Participants should wear long pants and close-toed shoes, and should bring/wear bug spray and sun block. Work gloves will be provided but volunteers may bring their own.
