It’s nearly spring, and that of course means Garlic Mustard Days of Destruction!

Here are the gatherings that the new organization, Friends of Decorah Parks is planning.

Palisades park:  go on the gravel road past the entrance to the end of the road.
When: Sat. April 13  9:00-noon,  April 20  9:00-noon

Plan to arrive not later than 10, as we may be moving to other locations.  Bring gloves.  We’ll have hand diggers and hoes, but we could use more hoes.  If you’ve come in the past, we need your experience.  If not, we need your help. We need a lot of eyes out there.  

FoDP will plan events in other parks.  We also encourage you to think about adopting a plot.  This is a great way to learn about this invasive, how to stop it, and have the immediate satisfaction of helping to save our parks.  

Send us a message if you’d like to be involved, and if you know which day you can come.  If you have questions, please contact Ellen Macdonald  ellenmac11@gmail.com
