LPD 2021 GARLIC MUSTARD CHALLENGE

April 1 - May 31

April is National Volunteer Month AND the month of Earth Day. This year you can volunteer AND help the Earth by participating in the LPD 2021 GARLIC MUSTARD CHALLENGE! You could even win a prize!
It’s as easy as 1,2,3!
The Garlic Mustard Challenge is an effort to prevent the further spread of the invasive plant garlic mustard (Allaria petiolata). YOU can make a difference! The intention is that this will be a collaborative effort where anyone and everyone can help make a difference to our shared green spaces.
When? April and May
Where? Participate by pulling garlic mustard anywhere managed by the Licking Park District where garlic mustard is present. Self serve bag stations will be at Infirmary Mound Park at the Shelter 5 kiosk and at The Lobdell Reserve Mounts Rd entrance kiosk.
(A permit is needed at Morris Woods State Nature Preserve)
Who? Anyone can participate!
How? Keep track of how many bags of garlic mustard you’ve pulled and report your bags using the online form!
