Help with removing some invasive plants (read: weeds) while visiting the tranquil trails of McKaig Nature Center.

Garlic Mustard plants are scattered throughout the woods, mainly in the more sunny areas. They are easily pulled by the stem. They have tiny white flowers at the top and the seeds are in the "horns" right below.

Please deposit them in the trash cans located at the entrances since the seeds can lay dormant for several years.

Note: by mindful of poison ivy since they often live close to each other.
