Garlic Mustard Picking and More(ls)

Twenty-eight ILC students made a spring visit to the Neighborhood House Nature Center to help pick garlic mustard, part of a land management plan to control invasive species at the 90-acre Dodge County site. The weather was wet, so the first order of business was to get everyone properly outfitted. Plastic garbage bags did double duty as raingear. Students filled many bags of garlic mustard, and even tried some as a condiment in noodle soup. Some lucky pickers found morel mushrooms, too- a Wisconsin delicacy (no bamboo in this jungle, sorry!) – another addition to our soup.
