The forests and spectacular wildflower covered slopes on the Bonnoront Preserve are threatened primarily by invasive garlic mustard which is a particular threat to one side of the gorge. This volunteer workday will primarily focus on hand-pulling the still small garlic mustard plants before they can set seed to protect the native plant communities.
Time: Meet at 10:00 a.m. or come when you can
