Bjorklunden, the northern campus of Lawrence University, hopes to enhance its' natural setting near Baileys Harbor with a grant to eradicate the invasive garlic mustard plants. The Door County Community Foundation awarded a $500 sustainability grant to Bjorklunden to pay for control efforts. Jane Whitney, a volunteer at Bjorklunden, says that will provide a long term solution to the invasive weeds.
Whitney says the $500 grant will pay most of the expense of hiring a company that specializes in the control of invasive plants. The grant was made through the Community Foundation's Ruth & Hartley Barker Memorial Fund and the Open Spaces Fund.
