Looking to get involved in restoration work in the Fall of 2013? Check out the Watershed Volunteer Program at Cleveland Metroparks. If your not a Cleveland Metroparks volunteer, you can sign a one day waiver. It's a great way to get involved and make our world a better place.
Grab your garden gloves and boots and join the volunteer effort to round up the invasive Garlic Mustard weed. This "alien" species is spreading through our natural areas and competing with the native spring wildflowers for space and nutrients. Hand pulling before the seeds are set is necessary to control the spread of Garlic Mustard and must be continued each year until the seed bank is depleted. Meet at the trail head behind the baseball fields to receive instructions and coordinate efforts. Many hands make light work: Recruit your friends, family and neighbors.****
