The Harrison County Native Habitat Alliance invites interested persons to participate in a weed wrangle Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon as part of Earth Day.

The group will pull garlic mustard in the Harrison-Crawford State Forest and celebrate Earth Day by learning plant identification, how to support pollinators and how to help restore native habitat.

All ages welcome.

Participants need to bring their own gloves, water and snacks and should wear appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes or boots. Long sleeves, hat and bug spray are recommended. They will also need to bring a face mask and remember to social distance.

The group will meet at the Blue River Chapel parking lot, located at 7075 S.R. 62 west of Corydon.

The Harrison County Native Habitat Alliance is a volunteer group organized to conserve the habitats of Harrison County by educating the community about the impacts of invasive species. The HCNHA works in partnership with the Indiana Invasives Initiative, Southern Indiana Cooperative Invasives Management and The Nature Conservancy.
