Cutting

Turn your "day off" into a "day on" by joining us to remove invasive shrubs from Buttonbush
Nature Area! Although this park has never been developed, disturbances along the edge of the
property threaten the health of the ecosystem here. Many hands make light work, and we
encourage you to use yours to help protect and restore this local gem. Pre-registration through
Rec1 is required as space is limited. Participants must wear a mask and maintain a 6-ft distance
from others at all times. Please wear long pants, closed-toed shoes, and leather work gloves. All
minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools and know-how provided. Meeting location
will be provided after registration.

About Natural Area Preservation

Location:

City of Ann Arbor Parks, Ann Arbor, MI 48105, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
