ISN hosted public workbees in Grand Traverse, Manistee, Benzie and Leelanau Counties. We would like to thank the 44 enthusiastic volunteers who put in over 132 hours of work pulling garlic mustard this month. With their help, ISN pulled more than 5,300 pounds from over 11 acres of high quality habitat. A big thanks to our partners, Oryana for providing a delicious garlic mustard lunch, our lunch host sites, and our volunteers for coming out rain or shine (or snow!) and making a huge dent in the populations of this invasive species at Magoon Creek, Tank Hill, Clay Cliffs, and the Nature Education Reserve at Oleson Bridge. Check out photos from our workbees!
Much of the garlic mustard we collect is shared with Paperworks Studios and turned into paper and greeting cards. Learn more about this exciting partnership as featured on 9&10 News and in the Record Eagle. Shop for garlic mustard greeting cards here!
We are gearing up for Japanese knotweed treatment! Japanese knotweed is a very tricky plant to control, and is a major threat to Michigan’s streams, wetlands, and other high quality habitats.
