Baby's Breath Workbees - Invasive Species Removal
July 20, 2024
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Elberta Beach Parking Lot

Baby's Breath Workbees - Invasive Species Removal  

Join ISN (Invasive Species Network) to remove baby’s breath from Elberta Beach in Benzie County! Spreading over northwest Michigan’s beaches and dunes, baby’s breath crowds out native plants and degrades important habitat.

Help restore Elberta Beach back to a diverse, healthy landscape!  

With a deep taproot, removal is hard work but extremely rewarding. Shovels and other tools will be provided but please bring your own work gloves to protect your hands while using shovels. Long pants are recommended as there is some poison ivy on the beach.

Registration appreciated.
