RRIP IT UP! (Rapid Response Invasive Plant Intervention Team – Upper Peninsula)
Rrrrrip it up! This newly formed invasive task force team in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has some big plans for removing and mapping garlic mustard in the UP. In addition to actual on-the-ground invasive weed removal, they plan in the near future to map both infestations of garlic mustard across the peninsula and garlic mustard “free” zones. RRIP IT UP is an effort being coordinated by the Upper Peninsula Resource Conservation and Development Council, ran as a collaborative project between a number of different organizations in the UP, and like the Stewardship Network’s 2010 Garlic Mustard Challenge, is being generously sponsored by the Sustain Our Great Lake Program.
