Boy so are we!! We are starting to think about getting out in the field and doing some spring cleaning at our preserves and easements. We need help from volunteers like you to keep invasive species at bay and our natural areas thriving. Stewardship work days (StewDays!) are great opportunities for community service, service or church groups, corporate outings or individuals just getting outside with like minded folks doing some good for Mother Earth!
May 6, 2016 at Nicholson Nature Center, 21417 Dunham RD, Clinton Township, MI. 8:30 am - 12:30 pm. Register by May 4.
Nicholson Nature Center is a beautiful preserve lying south of the Clinton River where it meanders through Clinton Township in Macomb County. We'll gather to remove invasive species such as garlic mustard, dame's rocket and moneywort, as well as cutting woody invasive species such as buckthorn and honeysuckle. We'll also clear rubbish and woody debris from the Clinton and her banks.
The morning work session will be followed by lunch at the site and then a kayak trip on the Clinton River. We are able to provide free kayaks for the first 25 registrants. Please feel free to join in with your own kayak.
We suggest wearing seasonally appropriate outdoor, work clothing in layers with boots and gloves to StewDays. Sunscreen and bug spray may also be desirable. For kayaking, we suggest leaving valuables on land as they may get wet.
It's time for some Nature Near You! Deadline for Entries with Completed Entry Form is August 24, 2016. See Complete Rules here.
