#WorldBeeDay22 Some bees use "buzz pollination" to get flowers to release pollen - their buzzing vibrates the anthers of the flower and the pollen just shakes off. This process is also called "sonication" and is one of many ways bees and other pollinators interact with flowers to collect pollen. Come celebrate bees with NAP while working to remove invasive plants from this park! Meet at the Beechwood entrance to the park (map: tinyurl.com/SunsetBeechwood). 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 and closed-toed shoes, and bring a water bottle and gardening gloves if you have them. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools and know-how provided. Register at tinyurl.com/Sunset052122.
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.
