Spotted Knapweed - Invasive

Meet on Waterloo Road just west of M-52. Roadside parking. Map: 42.34670,-84.04250

Join volunteer steward, Sheila B. to hand pull spotted knapweed. Help keep this invasive weed from taking over a nice prairie remnant and displacing native plants. We need your help to remove this plant before it goes to seed and it’s easy to pull. Please wear long pants and long sleeves as some individuals are sensitive to this plant. Contact Sheila with any day-of questions at 734-972-1428 ***This site has been known to have ground-nesting, stinging insects; please bring your sting relief kit if you are allergic.
