Join ISN and the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy as we work to remove invasive baby’s breath from Elberta Beach in Benzie County! Spreading easily over northwest Michigan’s beaches and dunes, baby’s breath crowds out native plants and degrades important habitat. We need your help to restore Elberta Beach back to a diverse, healthy landscape! With a deep taproot, removal is hard work but extremely rewarding. Shovels and other tools will be provided but please bring your own work gloves to protect your hands while using shovels. Long pants are recommended as there is some poison ivy on the beach. We will meet at Elberta Beach parking lot. Water and other refreshments will be provided.

As an extra thank you to volunteers, each particpant will receive coupons to both Stormcloud Brewing and the Crescent Bakery. There will also be a drawing at the end of each workbee for additional prizes including discounts to The Cabbage Shed and Frank Z, packets of wildflower seeds, ISN tee-shirts, and more! To RSVP please visit our website: www.gtrlc.org or call 231-929-7911
