Garlic mustard is more than a nuisance, it is a real threat to our ecosystems, including Bull’s Run.  On May 12th, a 4-H group came to Bull’s Run and pulled garlic mustard, filling 14 fifty-gallon trash bags.  That was a huge effort and much appreciated! But there is more and it is persistent and we must not let up in our efforts to control it along with bush honeysuckle.  Help in the battle when and where (even in your own backyard) you can!
