MRG Work Day – 5/16

Thanks to all who turned up on Saturday to work on the MRG!


 With an excavator, a dump truck, and a lot of human effort, TEN truckloads of railroad ties were hauled to the Lebanon Landfill, a total of 15.5 tons of heavy lifting!

While some were hoisting railroad ties, others were pulling garlic mustard, an invasive species that can choke out native wildflowers such as bloodroot, hepatica, and trillium. Garlic mustard releases chemicals that hinder the growth of other plants; removal leads to increased diversity.

Thanks to Travis Paige for the above photographs. You can find more of his MRG photos at
