Garlic Mustard pull at the Odana Golf Course. Garlic Mustard is an invasive plant that’s taking over our woodlands. It crowds out our beautiful native wildflowers and endangers forests. Help remove this invader and keep our local parks healthy. Please dress for the weather and the work! Where garlic mustard grows, we may also run into poison ivy, wood ticks and mosquitoes. Close-toed shoes, long pants and long-sleeved shirts are highly recommended. Bring bug repellent and gardening gloves if you’d like!  Meet at the woods along the southwest bike path, south of the golf course parking lot, 4635
