Garlic Mustard Pull-A-Thon



Join our efforts to control garlic mustard in this beautiful area!

Hawthorne Hills/Shady Lane Woods

The property is a natural area of regional significance because of the variety of plants - 75 species of trees, shrubs and wildflowers - and limited disturbance of the woods. The forest canopy is dominated by large sugar maple, beech, red oak, and basswood.

There is a rich set of spring wildflowers: white trillium, trout lily, jack-in-the-pulpit, wood anemone, bloodroot and buttercups. An uncommon flower blossoming here is goldenseal, a buttercup. Indian pipe, also known as ghost plant because it lacks chlorophyll, grows here.
