Event Description: 

DEEP Forester Ed McGuire is here to teach you all about the edible and invasive garlic mustard while you help out Goodwin in return.  Join him as he teaches you all about this plant and will guide you in an important forest management practice – invasive removal. Garlic mustard is highly shade-tolerant and capable of invading high-quality, mature forests.  To the detriment of spring wildflowers, garlic mustard quickly monopolizes resources.  Its allelopathic compounds inhibit seed germination of other species. Pull while you learn, and help Goodwin continue its ongoing eradication efforts.
