Earth Day Family Volunteer Project - Invasive Plant Species Removal - Cancelled due to weather!
Sunday, May 1, 9:30 am - Noon

Get the family outdoors to celebrate Earth Day and support the SM&NC! Join us for a "garlic mustard pull" to remove this invasive plant from our trails and woods.

Garlic mustard was introduced in the 1860's as a culinary herb and has since become an invasive species in much of Connecticut. Left unchecked, it can become the dominant plant in the undergrowth of forests, greatly reducing the diversity of all species. The garlic mustard leaves that we harvest will be offered to local food banks to help feed the hungry.

This opportunity is open to volunteers age 11 and older (ages 11 - 14 must be accompanied by an adult). Advance registration is requested. For more information or to register, please contact Cathryn Oulighan, Volunteer & Community Relations Manager, at 203.977.6530 or
