Garlic Mustard Pull and Pesto

Saunders Woods Preserve | Sun, April 15, 2018, 1:00pm - 3:00pm

One way to help control the spread of invasive garlic mustard is to eat it! We’ll spend time yanking out this easy-to-pull invasive herb, freeing space for native plants to thrive at Natural Lands’ Saunders Woods Preserve, a 25-acre oasis in the heart of the Main Line.

After gathering the greens, we’ll enjoy the fruits of our labor with freshly made garlic mustard pesto and homemade bread, for a relaxing afternoon at our picturesque preserve.

Saunders Woods Preserve is a natural oasis for wildlife and community residents in the heart of the Main Line. The Bridlewild Trail passes through the preserve and connects to a wider system of paths that wind through the community. A walk here reveals a lively forest habitat as well as an open meadow that is home to a variety of bird species.

What to wear:
  • Dress for the season and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes

  • Bug spray and hat are suggested
What to bring:
  • Work gloves, if you have them (or borrow ours!)
  • Refillable water bottle
