Master Naturalist , Caroline Meehan, and a Native Plant Society member will be joining us to show us the enemy.
The Wednesday hike on May 10 will be in the mountains to pick Garlic Mustard plants for 3 hours. The work is easy, no tools are needed as there is no digging and we will have bags. Do bring gloves (gardening type recommended) , a walking stick, water, snacks and lunch.
Wednesday hikers, this is a good time to give back. Remember all all those weekend work trips we keep putting off? Late Spring is a wonderful time to be in the mountains. We need to meet at 9:30 AM at Rockville park and ride to get to Humpback Rocks, work on pulling the plants and arrive back at the park and ride about 3:30 PM. Call or e-mail Jim Hunt to have your name added to the list or workers (804-730-2364 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
