Every May, volunteers have been diligently pulling garlic mustard from various spots found within Tiny Marsh Provincial Wildlife Area. Efforts continue this year, with the addition of an exciting new dimension!

Volunteers will be removing the unwanted weed and replacing it with 1500 flowering native perennials that will provide much-needed pollen and nectar for native pollinators – bees, butterflies and other insects. There are over 400 different species of native bees in Ontario and many populations are stressed for lack of floral resources and habitat.

The “Pull and Plant” will take place on Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28 from 9am to 5pm. Anyone wishing to help and can offer up a couple of hours in either the morning or afternoon contact Anne McArthur at aemcarth@rogers.com. Gloves, long sleeves, long pants and closed footwear as well as bug spray are recommended.
