Elberta Beach Baby's Breath Removal

Elberta Beach Baby's Breath Removal

Join GTRLC and the Invasive Species Network as we work to remove invasive baby's breath from Elberta Beach in Benzie County! Spreading easily over northwest Michigan's beaches and dunes, baby's breath crowds out native plants and degrades important habitat.

The Basics:

GTRLC and ISN supply gloves and tools. We will teach you everything you need to know about tool use, safety, and the importance of the work you will be doing. No experience necessary, just come ready to learn something new! This is a moderately strenuous activity, with volunteers often bending and kneeling to dig out plants. There are porta johns available at the parking area.

What should I bring?

Dress for the weather! Always check the forecast in advance
Sturdy footwear recommended
Long pants recommended as there is poison ivy present
Bring a reusable water bottle and some snacks
Sunscreen and bug spray for your safety and comfort
Directions: Please meet us in the lower parking lot at Elberta Beach.

Registration is appreciated but is not required. Cancellations due to weather, changing COVID-19 restrictions, or any other reason will be communicated with registered participants via email.
