Invasive Species Coalition Seeking Help Pulling Garlic Mustard at Ferdinand Forest

(FERDINAND) – Invasive Garlic Mustard is working its way down one of the valleys to the lake at Ferdinand State Forest and the Invasive Species Awareness Coalition of Dubois County is forming a posse to pull the invasive flowering plants.

Join volunteers Tuesday evening, April 16 to help. You will learn how to identify the garlic mustard, as well as identify some look-alikes.
Meet at the Twin Oaks parking area at the bottom of the hill of the entrance to Ferdinand State Forest anytime between 5 and 6 p.m. EDT Tuesday to sign in and get assigned a spot to pull. Volunteers can work as long as they want but the group will finish at 8 p.m.
The work will be conducted in a beautiful wooded area.
In order to pull, you must be physically able to bend over and pull the plant gently out of the ground — similar to weeding in your yard.
If you are unable to help but would like to learn to identify this plant, please stop by from 5 to 6 p.m.
This pull is put on by Friends of Ferdinand State Forest with help from Invasive Species Awareness Coalition of Dubois County.
