Garlic Mustard Eradication in Thunder Bay

In June 2016 the EDRR Network coordinated its first localized invasive species eradication project in Thunder Bay, Ontario. A small patch of garlic mustard was identified during a volunteer training session and a small task force was created to prevent this species from spreading into other natural areas. The Thunder Bay District Master Gardeners and Thunder Bay Field Naturalists Club were instrumental in organizing teams to identify, map and remove the only known population of this invasive plant in the district. We look forward to monitoring the area next year to eliminate any lingering threats posed by an existing seedbank. Excellent work by all involved!
