This invasive plant, garlic mustard, is out now and will soon bloom. If you see this around, pull it! You do not want it spreading around your yard or woods. Once you pull it, there are recipes for it, so it’s not a total waste of your time. Recipes are here: http://www.maipc.org/morerecipes.html.

MALT will be leading work groups on the trail heads of the TAM and Otter View Park. Meet at Wright Park, Otter View, or any TAM trail head with your bags and gloves to pick up any trash found. MALT staff will be around with bags at Wright Park and OVP. Separate Midd College clean up group will meet in front of Proctor.
MALT is happy to announce that our 2013 Project Funding Request to the National Park Service was approved! We can now begin work on some boardwalks we need to build or replace around the TAM, and maintain our other bridges. This grant will pay for supplies needed, in spite of tight budgets. Thanks, NPS!
