Garlic Mustard Season

Garlic mustard picking time. Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) a pest species introduced to North America from Europe, is blooming all over the Lake Wingra watershed and especially here along the SW Bike Path where citizens and community groups organize efforts to contain its spread. Humans brought it in, created disturbed sites for its spread, and now other humans are trying to bring it under control. Photo by Stephen B. Glass
