Removing invasive white sweet clover near Mono LakeAugust 17th, 2017 by Ava, Mono Lake Intern
Thank you to botanist Ann Howald and all the volunteers who joined us on August 8 to remove invasive white sweet clover at Mono Lake!
The event was incredibly productive due to all of your hard work and effort. Together we pulled 177.75 pounds of white sweet clover, Melilotus albus, at the Old Marina boardwalk. Luckily the weather complied by not being too hot, and the weeds were obliging enough to come out of the damp soil easily.
Also, it seemed like nearly everyone who was there made a new friend.
For those of you who are interested in coming out again, or if you missed the last event, we will have one more removal day this season on Wednesday, August 30 from 9:00am to 12:00pm. We will meet at the Mono Lake Committee, then carpool to the location we’ll be weeding. Please bring close-toed shoes, sun protection, plenty of water, and a snack. And of course, be sure to stick around afterwards for a picnic lunch!
Feel free to contact me by email or at (760) 647-6595 with any questions or to RSVP. We’re looking forward to seeing you out there!
