Center for Biodiversity needs your help with garlic mustard removal, June 11 and 14

Join The Cofrin Center for Biodiversity to help remove garlic mustard from the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum Bay Shore Woods unit. “Led by our Restoration Assistant Sam Hoffman, we will be continuing our efforts to hand-pull garlic mustard that is invading the forest floor and displacing native vegetation. Extensive efforts have been completed the past three field seasons and your help is important to maintaining our progress. The Bay Shore Woods unit of the Cofrin Arboretum is one of the largest tracts of northern hardwood swamp in our region and is highly valuable bird, amphibian and pollinator habitat. Meet at Lambeau Cottage, 2479 Nicolet Dr Green Bay WI 54311, Tuesday June 11, and/or Friday June 14. We will be working until approximately noon., but feel free to stay for as little or as long as you would like. We will supply all necessary equipment, but feel free to bring your favorite pair of work gloves if you prefer. Long sleeves, pants, water, and sturdy shoes are recommended.”
