Killing Garlic Mustard & Dropping Eggs at the Schrader Center!

June 8, 2012 — Working at the Schrader Center is really fun! In just two days’ time we taught younger campers about the fundamentals of flight, ran a paper airplane competition, did an egg drop, hid geocaches, and helped with the weekly bioblitz (a scavenger hunt ).  We concluded our week helping with the Nature Day Camp cook out!

Luke and Brendan’s favorite part of the week was helping the Nature Day Campers with the egg drop because it made the campers’ day if their egg capsule succeeded.  On the other hand, Jared says, “Killing every last piece of Garlic Mustard in Oglebay Park is my duty to the earth itself!”

Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) is an invasive exotic species that wipes out other plants in its area.  Although it was a tiring week, the enjoyment of working, teaching, and seeing your friends again was really worth it! ~Jr Rangers Teach Team
