Volunteers sought for garlic mustard ‘pull’

- Associated Press - Saturday, April 19, 2014

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - Up for the garlic mustard "pull" challenge?

Conservation groups in New Hampshire are seeking volunteers to help pull out the invasive plant in Newmarket, Lee, Durham, and Kittery, Maine.

Garlic mustard is a non-native plant that crowds out native plants.

Ellen Snyder, partnership coordinator of The Stewardship Network: New England, says garlic mustard can be pulled by hand with relative ease.

Pulls are scheduled for Saturday, April 26, at The Nature Conservancy's Lubberland Creek in Newmarket, from 9 a.m. to noon and at Fort Foster in Kittery from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Other events take place May 3 at the Lee Safety Complex from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and May 6 at the Oyster River Dam in Durham's College Woods from 10 a.m. to noon.
