Conservation Activity – East Rock Garlic Mustard Pull, Craig Repasz

April 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Take part in a crucial conservation project. Help remove garlic mustard from East Rock Park, an Important Bird Area that is a vital migratory bird stopover and breeding habitat. This invasive plant is a pernicious, prolific pest that can overrun forested areas, squeeze out native spring flowers, kill butterfly caterpillars, and alter the habitat of our native birds. In three years, we’ve already made a significant improvement at this site! Long pants and sleeves are recommended. Bring work gloves if you have them. Meet at the Eli Whitney Museum, 915 Whitney Ave., Hamden.

Leader: Craig Repasz, 203-230-1697 (home), 203-747-6843 (cell), or crespasz@hotmail.com
