A little too much garlic . . .

Garlic mustard—an invasive plant that can overwhelm the natural habitat of Michigan’s wildflowers and native flora within a few years—was in the crosshairs of the Stewardship Network this spring. Network volunteers aimed to pull an estimated 100,000 pounds of the invader during April and May. There are plenty more opportunities available.

The Stewardship Network and its local clusters offer workshops across the southern half of the Lower Peninsula on a broad range of topics related to caring for natural lands and waters. Examples of just a few that are coming up are: “River Ecology by Canoe,” “The Spectacular Coastal Plain Marshes,” “Prairie Ecology,” and “How to Manage Narrow Leaved Cattails.”

Visit www.stewardshipnetwork.org to find a workshop in your area. You can also use the Stewardship Network’s online searchable calendar to find stewardship-related events offered by organizations throughout Michigan. Join the thousands of people who are already using this great resource.
