Invasive Species Workday

Maryland

A window into ice ages past, Finzel Swamp is located in a "frost pocket," an area where the surrounding hills capture moisture and cold air that conspire to create a landscape more reminiscent of habitat found much further north in Canada.

Volunteers are needed for an invasive species workday to help pull invasive garlic mustard from this special place. Bring work gloves, lunch and water. The site may be muddy, so wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet.
