garlic mustard

The Centerville-Washington Park District hosts an annual garlic mustard challenge each spring.

Garlic mustard is an aggressive, non-native plant taking over natural areas. You can help restore and protect your native ecosystems with this fun volunteer challenge! Drop off 13-gallon garbage bags filled with garlic mustard to the CWPD operations facility at 354 Congress Park Blvd. April 10 through June 5.

Each team submitting at least five full bags will receive a Pull Your Weight t-shirt for each team member! The team or individual to bring the most full bags will win a grand prize.

Each registered team will be given a box of biodegradable, certified compostable garbage bags to start.

Contact Ginger Clark at to register your team and receive all of the necessary information to get started.

The Pull Your Weight challenge is a great opportunity for individuals, families, scout troops, corporate service groups, church groups and students looking for service hours!
