Central Chapter to remove invasives in Irvington

Central Chapter’s Invasives Swat Team is planning a volunteer day to remove garlic mustard along the Pleasant Run Trail near Irvington in Indianapolis.  Volunteers will meet on E. Pleasant Run Parkway S. Dr., East of Emerson on Sunday, May 6 at 2:00 p.m., and work until about 5:00 p.m.  Garlic mustard is rampant along the trail and spreading into adjacent private property.  INPAWS volunteers will be joined by area residents.

It’s a great opportunity to get some exercise, enjoy good company, and help nature at the same time.  On April 15 the Team removed 29 bags of garlic mustard from Holiday Park in Indianapolis.  We hope to double that on May 6.  Below is a photo of the Holiday Park haul.

Anyone interested in helping should contact Tom Hohman at pastpres@inpaws.org.
