Visit a park and you are usually told to look and not touch the plants, but on May 8, Oakland County Parks is asking volunteers to help pull the invasive garlic mustard plant at the Highland Oaks County Park.

The garlic mustard is an invasive plant that has a negative impact on forest biodiversity. It is important to remove it from the park to maintain the integrity of the other plants species.

Work gloves and snacks are provided.

The garlic mustard plant pull will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. To pre-register, call (248) 858-0704 or e-mail For more information about Oakland County Parks conservation efforts, visit Highland Oaks County Park, located at 6555 Milford Road in Highland.
