ANNUAL GARLIC MUSTARD PULL
Skokie River Nature Preserve  

Saturday, May 18, 2019
9:00 a.m. - noon

Spring volunteer work day activities include brush control and planting.
Access to the Skokie River Nature Preserve is at the west end of Laurel Avenue, west of Green Bay Road. Park at the end of Laurel and walk on the bike path across the bridge to the wood-chipped trail on the right.

Our Annual Garlic Mustard Pull helps control this invasive species. The most effective treatment is hand pulling by getting the root. Garlic mustard seeds stay viable in the soil for upwards of 7 years, so it's important to catch it before it goes to seed.
