Posted on 04/20/2021

Garlic mustard, an invasive, destructive weed, is taking over the Coldwater Springs Nature Area off Ridge Road, north of Five Mile Road. It’s detrimental to the greenery, since native plants have difficulty thriving in the presence of garlic mustard.

To stop its spread, Northville Township, Northville Parks & Recreation and Friends of the Rouge are urging community members to join them in a garlic mustard removal event May 15. (The rain date is May 22.) Residents are asked to bring their own work gloves and masks, follow social distancing rules and arrive between 8:30-9 am to sign in. Not only will it help the nature area, but the pulled weeds will be weighed and measured, which helps the Friends of the Rouge secure a grant for this important project.

The parking is limited near the Coldwater Springs Nature area, on the east side of Ridge Road. Please let us know you’re coming by registering at:  https://secure.qgiv.com/for/trgs/event/828382/.
