    Program for sending a group of students to help pull the invasive Alliaria petiolata Garlic Mustard from the Pennsylvania White Clay Creek Preserve last Saturday The group of 34 students from the University of Delaware and area high schools traversed over 4 miles of the PA Preserve trails hiking and pulling the invasive plant from the woods as part of a day of service celebrating Earth Day The students learned about the invasive plant and the the threats it poses to native ephemeral wildflowers Opportunistic plants that have not co evolved with other species in our area often have fewer threats to their viability In other words they may have fewer natural pests and predation threats as well as the ability to rapidly colonize an area This often gives them a competitive edge over our native species allowing them to displace or greatly reduce the population of natives It was a day of service but there was also time for some sight seeing We spied a spotted turtle basking in the sun heard spring peepers singing in a nearby wetland and saw some of the many beautiful spring wildflowers blooming along the trail such as Jacob s ladder may apple trout lily spring beauty and the emerging fronds of the Christmas fern All of which make the White Clay Creek Preserve such a treasure to visit Tagged allaria petiolata blue hen leadership program garlic mustard landenberg pennsylvania white clay creek preserve Comment Newer Posts Older Posts BLOG RSS Subscribe Name Name First Name Last Name Email Address Thank you Upcoming Events Featured May 7 May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park White Clay Creek Fest May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park May 9 2016 10 00am 12 00pm 10 00 12 00 Shane Morgan Comment New Garden Township Building May 9 2016 10 00am 12 00pm 10 00 12 00 Shane Morgan Comment New Garden Township Building Wild Scenic Program Steering Committee Meeting May 9 2016 10 00am 12 00pm 10 00 12 00 Shane Morgan Comment New Garden Township Building May 9 2016 10 00am 12 00pm 10 00 12 00 Shane Morgan Comment New Garden Township Building May 9 2016 10 00am 12 00pm 10 00 12 00 Shane Morgan Comment New Garden Township Building May 9 2016 10 00am 12 00pm 10 00 12 00 Shane Morgan Comment New Garden Township Building May 21 2016 9
