2014 Garlic Mustard Pull-A-Thon

Thank you for joining the fun and friendly competition

spring news1 Our Garlic Mustard Pull-A-Thon is an annual fundraiser event, where we encourage folks throughout southeastern Wisconsin to protect the woodlands of their neighborhoods by pulling this invasive plant.  This year, our goal is to collectively pull 5,000 pounds and raise essential funds for the fight against invasive species! 

The pull-a-thon is a competition, a fundraiser, and a way for people to join together and have a positive impact on their environment.  Our natural areas will only avoid damage from invasives with a long-term sustained commitment to invasives control.  

Many thanks to all of you who got outdoors, pulled garlic mustard, told your neighbors about this invasive plant, and reported your progress as part of the 2014 event! The competition has ended, we are tallying the final numbers and will soon announcent the 2014 winning team.  Stay tuned!
