On May 19th
- 2007, several Ulao Creek Partnership members participated in a Garlic Mustard Pull
on the WE Energies properly located off of STH 32 and Ulao Parkway and Tom
Latzl’s property adjacent to WE Energies in an effort to remove garlic
mustard from this impressive woodlot.
Garlic mustard, as you all
know, is a very aggressive invasive species that can completely alter and
degrade woodland communities. Over the past several years, garlic mustard
has begun to spread throughout the watershed. There are at least 1/2-dozen
sites and more and more location each year where it is popping up in small
populations. The best time to try to manage for this species is when it
first begins to colonize a site.
