Garlic Mustard Pull and Wildflower Hike

April Stewardship Event

Date: Saturday, April 29, 2023

Time: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm ET

Location: Goll Woods State Nature Preserve, 26093 County Rd F, Archbold, OH

We’ll be helping preserve manager Maureen Bogdanski with garlic
mustard removal. If you’ve never done garlic mustard removal before, it’s very easily hand-pulled, so this only requires that you can bend over frequently. Please bring work gloves and muck boots if you have them.

Afterwards, we’ll have a spring wildflower walk to see what’s in bloom.

We’ll meet at the preserve office as highlighted in yellow on this map.

Please RSVP for this event here.

Anyone registering for this event will also need to sign this ODNR volunteer form. The form is good for the year, so you can skip this step if you’ve already volunteered this year. (There will be some printed forms available on site.)
