In 2007, volunteers from MNPS worked to clean up the woods around Little Paint Branch Park. See what some areas looked like before and after the clean-up.

Area heavily infested with garlic mustard in front of large tree; volunteer hands seen in background pulling weeds
Before cleanup: garlic mustard abounds. Garlic mustard is the tall plant with the white flowers at the top.

Cleared area showing no garlic mustard in front of tree
After cleanup: we can now view the native plant, poison ivy. Poison ivy is the thick vine crawling up the tree trunk.
