Garlic Mustard Removal / Boulevard Beds remove cold season grasses

May 26, 2019 at 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

The High Park Stewards have been removing Garlic Mustard from a number of sites within the park for many years. Protocols on how best to control GM are changing all the time and we are always upgrading our skills.

We are able to notice a real positive effect from our work but there is still lots to do.

As many people as possible are needed as there is no end of this plant in High Park.

Meet us in front of the Grenadier Restaurant at 10:30 am. Tools provided. Please bring water, a hat, and cover your arms and legs.

The Boulevard Beds group will also be working on our demonstration gardens located on the perimeter of the Grenadier Restaurant (removing cold season grasses & weeds/transplant wildflowers & grasses). A few people are needed to join them.

The Biodiversity and Education Awareness Network BEAN has excellent information on keeping this species from further damaging our forests.
