It is that time of the year again, battling Door County invasive species.
For the past few weeks several individuals have been helping spray for garlic mustard at Newport State Park. And, the spraying is paying off. But, there are still garlic mustard plants in the park that need to be pulled before they go to seed.
Newport Wilderness Society is supporting this phase of garlic mustard eradication by sponsoring work sessions to pull garlic mustard in the morning from 9 am to 12 noon and afternoons from 1 to 4 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for next few weeks. Three individuals are needed for each session. With the help of local restaurants, the Society will provide lunches for the morning and afternoon crews.
If you are able to help Newport Wilderness Society and park personnel with this project, please call the park 920.854.2500 and let park personnel know when you will be able to pull garlic mustard. Gloves are needed. Bags will be provided. Thanks for all the help you may offer.
