Rattray Marsh Uproot Uprise is an invasive species removal event that Credit Valley Conservation has been hosting for many years. We ask volunteers to join us for a morning of invasive species pulling. Typically, garlic mustard, honeysuckle, and buckthorn are the target species for removal. We remove the species by hand and using a tool called an Extractigator.
Do your part to control the spread of ‘natural space’ invaders and keep Rattray Marsh healthy. Together we will remove garlic mustard, common buckthorn and other invasive species that are choking out the native plants that wildlife depend on.
Dress for the weather, wear long pants and sturdy boots or shoes.
Please note that registration won't open until early May, pending COVID restrictions. At that time, please check our link and find the event in our Events Calendar to register.
