Thursday May 29th was the last day for garlic mustard pulling!
Most of the volunteers stayed a little while afterwards and got to see the following birds right after they stopped pulling!!
1. Connecticut Warbler
2. Mourning Warbler
The group went down to Oak Harbor for a celebration dinner and had a wonderful time.
Thanks to all the volunteers who pulled this year!!!!
PS - We filled well over 100 bags of Garlic Mustard this spring!!!
Great job everyone and we will see you all next year.
