Come out and spend the morning working with staff to remove invasive garlic mustard in Lums Pond State Park. Once introduced, garlic mustard poses a severe threat to the forested habitat and it can outcompete Delaware’s native wildflowers and other important understory plants. We will be working along the trails, pulling and bagging the garlic mustard to help enhance the forest habitat and species diversity in the park.
This even is part of a Mid-Atlantic regional invasive species removal day. For more details and to find other removal sites, visit:
An invasive species is an alien species whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health according to the National Invasive Species Monitoring Plan. The spread of invasive species is a pervasive and growing problem within Delaware and the United States.
The Delaware Invasive Species Council, Inc. (DISC) was formed to help Delaware deal with this rapidly growing problem.
