The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same

Just as soon as one cluster would start to take the lead this week, the current leader would jump in and submit a big pull!  By the end of the week, the score board looks just about the same as it did last week.  This week’s most exciting news is we now have several Garlic Mustard Free sites!

GARLIC MUSTARD FREE SITES

We now have 7 Garlic Mustard Free Sites!  We still have a ways to go before we get to our goal of 20.  Remember, in order to be garlic mustard free, your site just needs to be free of all second year plants regardless of which eradication method you used.  This is the chance for all of you that are herbiciding, torching, burning or just don’t have garlic mustard to get your name on the charts!

  • Lakeplain Cluster has two Garlic Mustard Free Sites:  Robbe Farm Floodplain Forest at Lower Huron Metropark and Bobwhite Trail Forest at Lower Huron Metropark
  • Headwaters Cluster has two Garlic Mustard Free Sties:  Hickory Ridge Woodland at Kensington Metropark and North Windfall Hill Woodland at Kensington Metropark
  • West Michigan Cluster has one Garlic Mustard Free Site:  Barbara Olson’s 72 Acre neighborhood
  • Huron Arbor has one Garlic Mustard Free Site:  Entrance Woods Floodplain Forest at Hudson Mills Metropark
  • Mid-Michigan has one Garlic Mustard Free Site:  Sanford Wood

Here are how things are stacking up in the Cluster Cup Challenges:

HEAVY WEIGHT DIVISION

Both the Huron Arbor and West Michigan Clusters reported a lot this week, but West Michigan Cluster still retains their lead by 10,000 pounds!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MIDDLE WEIGHT DIVISION

Despite some big reports coming in from all cluster, the Out-of-Cluster Area folks are keeping a tight grip on their lead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LIGHT WEIGHT DIVISION

This is definitely still the most exciting race in the challenge.  Lakeplain and Raisin Cluster are just 600 pounds apart!  Stay tuned to see if Raisin Cluster will pull ahead next week.

  1. The structure for your blog is a bit off in Epiphany. Nevertheless I like your website. I may need to use a normal web browser just to enjoy it.
