Fall Cutting

Bush honeysuckle seemed like a good idea at the time - in the early 1800s it was introduced along with other honeysuckles as an ornamental and privacy shrubbery. But like many of the mistakes made by settlers in the area, bush honeysuckle has had a devastating effect. Attributes that were attractive when introduced - hardiness, quick growth, visually dense - are now the reasons bush honeysuckle pose one of the largest threats to the biodiversity of our natural areas as they crowd and shade native plants. Join us to cut and remove these invaders!

Meet at the park entrance on Beechwood Dr, north of Sunset Rd. Pre-registration through VolunteerHub is encouraged; please stay home if you are feeling ill. NAP continues to monitor recommendations from health officials, volunteers registered for events will be notified in advance of any changes to the workday. Please wear long pants (we recommend layered clothing in winter) and closed-toed shoes and bring a water bottle and leather gloves if you have them. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools and know-how provided.

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.
