Fighting back versus an invasive plant

Enbridge volunteers recently spent a day in Mellen, WI, helping to eradicate garlic mustard—a plant that’s edible, but is also “a highly invasive plant that unfortunately exists in all four counties of northern Wisconsin,” says Michelle, a Community Engagement Specialist with Enbridge. Garlic mustard chokes out native plants and “releases a toxin that can kill favorable fungi in the ground,” notes Adam, a Mainline Service Manager with Enbridge. Taylor, a member of Enbridge’s Tribal Engagement team, said she volunteered for the forest gardening duties because “I love building relationships with communities . . . it’s really important to Enbridge to be out in the community and protecting the environment.”
