Fall Cutting

Soil is home to more than ¼ of our planet’s biodiversity! Soil organisms are responsible for many critical ecosystem processes, on which humans depend: from supporting plant growth to storing carbon. Soil biodiversity is truly a nature-based solution to climate change. Join us to support healthy soils in our parks on #WorldSoilDay by removing invasive shrubs like buckthorn, which can have a long-lasting negative effect on soil health. #SoilBiodiversity Meet us in the parking lot off of West Huron River Dr., just southeast of Wagner Rd.

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.
