Volunteers removed garlic mustard from the Broad Ripple Park woods

Again this year, we removed invasive garlic mustard from the 10 Acre Woods!

This aggressive invasive will crowd out the lovely native wildflowers unless we control it, so each year the Friends of Broad Ripple Park pull & remove the plant. As in past years, we got a lot of help from other local organizations.

April 27: Six Broad Ripple Farmers Market volunteers pulled garlic mustard. View the photo gallery below.

May 4: Six Broad Ripple Kiwanis volunteers pulled garlic mustard. View the photo gallery below.

IUPUI students clear invasives

Big shout-out to IUPUI students from the Center for Earth and Environmental Science! Despite a cold drizzle, they removed invasive honeysuckle and winter creeper from the Broad Ripple Park 10 Acre Woods, thereby helping to keep the forest ecosystem native and healthy. The soft, rain-soaked ground allowed these hard workers to remove many of the plants root and all. Great work, thank you! Check out the photos on their Facebook page.
