Volunteer – Garlic Mustard Removal
Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary | Sat, April 27, 2019, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Volunteers play an essential role in improving Mariton’s ecological health by pulling garlic mustard, an invasive plant that takes up space where native plants could thrive. With teamwork and persistence, we are making a difference in controlling this plant—which is easy and satisfying to pull!
Volunteering with Natural Lands is a great way to learn about habitats and wildlife, while helping care for natural resources and connecting with like-minded people.
Mariton is perched on the steep slopes of Bougher Hill overlooking the scenic Delaware River. A highlight of the preserve’s trail system is the River Lookout Trail, with an overlook of both the Delaware Canal and the Delaware River 300 feet below.
Mariton’s Nature Center includes a library, meeting space, and ADA restrooms, and is open by prior arrangement.
