I still hope to make one last work day with Friends of Deer Grove, but one thing for sure – today was the last time I scouted my spring area as a Weed Scout.
I took mom with me, so that she could also see the part of the forest preserve she usually does not see. I l spotted beautiful spring flowers.
And I performed my last act of service to the Forest Preseervee – pulled out a dozen of garlic mustard plants!
Also, I educated several passerbys about invasives and why we are fighting Garlic mustard, which I guess was also an act of service.
I will miss Deer Drove, and all the people with whom I volunteered there for seven years…
