Stewardship Workday at Scarlett Mitchell Nature Area-World Biodiversity Day
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
Join us in this beautiful park to celebrate World Biodiversity Day! There is plenty of wildlife to appreciate in this expansive nature area, as well as plenty of non-native plants to remove. Help us make this much-loved park a better habitat in which native species can continue to thrive by pulling garlic mustard. Meet in the Scarlett Middle School parking lot off Lorraine Street. Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. All participants must complete a release form, and all minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools, snacks, and know-how provided.
About Natural Area Preservation
City of Ann Arbor Parks, Ann Arbor, MI 48105, US
Natural Area Preservation (NAP) works to protect and restore Ann Arbor's natural areas and to foster an environmental ethic among its citizens. This involves conducting plant and animal inventories, ecological monitoring, and stewardship projects in Ann Arbor parks. These tasks are performed by both staff and volunteers.
One third of NAP's field work is done by volunteers, so community involvement is vital to the success of its conservation efforts. NAP projects take volunteers well beyond the realm of litter clean-up into broader areas of concern, such as maintaining biodiversity and restoring damaged ecosystems. Through the combination of hands-on involvement and scientific understanding, NAP hopes to encourage and support a connection between individual volunteers and their surrounding natural environment. By sharing this experience with friends and neighbors, volunteers play a crucial role in fostering an environmental ethic in the community.
