Volunteer opportunity: Into the Wild & Out with the Mustard

By Kerri on April 23, 2014 in Blog


Come “Into the Wild” with us to save the woodlands! Garlic mustard is a highly invasive, non-native plant that, when left unchecked, can seriously degrade a high quality woodland. This volunteer day will focus on hand-pulling the plant in small groups.

What: An invasive species removal event.

Where: Heritage Valley, an INHF-owned property near Decorah in NE Iowa.

When: Saturday, May 3rd. Two shifts available: 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.; 1:00 p.m. –  4:30 p.m.

Why: To help keep Iowa diverse for generations to come.


All you need to do is show up! We provide lunch and refreshments. All ages welcome. Volunteers asked to bring work gloves, a water bottle, sunscreen, and to dress for the weather and uneven terrain.

Registration necessary: contact Mary Runkel, INHF volunteer coordinator, by email or at 515-288-1846, ext 17.
