Truckload of invasive weeds
When my husband and I visited Tiny Marsh about a week ago, volunteers were pulling invasive weeds - garlic mustard to be exact.

Tiny Marsh is not tiny but in the township of Tiny, a rural community south of Lake Huron. We like to visit it to see the wildlife there.

I was hoping to see pied-billed grebes, but they were too shy to come out.

I was also hoping to see wood ducks but was told to return in another month.
The volunteers were replacing the invasive weeds with indigenous species such as mayapples, trillium and bloodroot that grow in shade and bloom in spring.
