Story of the Week

This recent photo of me is one from a day we spent pulling garlic mustard at TNC’s Raven Ridge Natural Area in Monkton last week (following our new COVID field work protocols, wearing my face covering!). Garlic mustard is a prolific seed producer and can overtake the understory of forests, threatening native species diversity. Every spring, TNC stewardship staff spend several days hand-pulling and removing it before it releases seed at various natural areas owned and managed by TNC.
