Description

Join us to HELP FILL THE CRIB!!

We will hike in from Ridge Road picking invasive plants such as garlic mustard and greater celandine along the way (reusable grocery bags or garbage bags work well). Once at the crib location, we will dump our bags and pick garlic mustard in that area for a while, dump it, then hike back out. Plenty of native spring plants to admire along the way - reducing invasive plants will give these species a chance to thrive!
