Ming Pulling Garlic Mustard
Ming is pulling garlic mustard in the forest. She also found morel mushrooms on this day.

Work with The Nature Conservancy in the midst of woodland wildflowers while pulling the alien herb Garlic Mustard. While you're working you'll get to see migrating warblers, wood frogs, and an early Tiger Swallowtail. Bird and plant experts will be present to help wiith identification. You can take home the Garlic Mustard you pull to use as mulch or to cook for the high vitamin A and C content. This part of the preserve is not normally open to the public so this is your chance to see it. Snacks and cold drinks will be served at the end of the workday, followed by a wlk to a vernal pool. For even more fun bring your friends!

No experience necessary, we’ll teach you all you need to know. Bring lunch and water you can carry into the field. Gloves and tools are provided. Feel free to bring your camera, binoculars, and field guide.
