Rid the Cofrin Arboretum of garlic mustard, Wednesday, June 27 (Courtyard also needs help)
Join The Cofrin Center for Biodiversity to help remove garlic mustard from the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum Bay Shore Woods unit. Led by Restoration Assistant Sam Hoffman, volunteers will be continuing 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. Your help is important to maintaining the progress. The Bay Shore Woods unit of the Cofrin Arboretum is one of the largest tracts of northern hardwood swamp in the region and is highly valuable bird, amphibian and pollinator habitat. Please meet at Lambeau Cottage, 2479 Nicolet Dr. Green Bay WI 54311. Feel free to stay for as little or as long as you would like. All necessary equipment will be supplied, but feel free to bring your favorite pair of work gloves if you prefer. Long sleeves, pants, water, and sturdy shoes are recommended. Contact Bobbie Webster or Sam Hoffman if you plan on attending, or contact Bobbie Webster with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org 920-465-2030.
