Something new for you, in the spirit of the meme to set aside a day of the week for a special set of blog posts. With spring in full swing in the Western hemisphere, volunteer groups are out in full force fighting invasives. Here's a list of weekend "Weedbusting" activities:
- Pull garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) 5/29 in Monroe, WI.
- Purge the spurge (Euphorbia esula) 6/4 at Wasatch Mountain State Park, UT.
- Pull dame's rocket (Hesperis matronalis) in Dryden, MI.
- Attack many invasive plants in projects organized by the Ohio chapter of The Nature Conservancy.
- Remove English ivy (Hedera helix) in Washington state, sponsored by Ivy O.U.T.
