Handy Work for the Earth: Garlic Mustard Pull

Celebrate earth and lend a hand to the natural forest at the Garlic Mustard Pull from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Let’s pull garlic mustard into extinction. Team up with guides Julie McQuade, Pipestem’s naturalist and Richard Altare with the National Park Service to help remove this highly invasive plant species, garlic mustard. We’re celebrating Earth Day a bit late to lend a helping hand to the Bluestone River Gorge. Meet at Pipestem’s Nature Center to get started.

Wear long sleeves, long pants, sturdy walking shoes, work gloves, and bring water. This event is part of the New River Gorge Wildflower Weekend and one of many activities at multiple state parks and the National Park Service. Contact Julie McQuade at 304-466-1800, ext. 344 or email [email protected] to say you’re attend and helping with the Garlic Mustard Pull. Activity duration is about three hours. Youth and service groups are welcomed.
