Pollinators would love your help this Saturday morning. In fact, hand-pulling invasive weeds at Dolph will support pollinators, and YOU! By removing aggressive non-native plants like garlic mustard and dame’s rocket, you’ll be freeing-up resources for the native plants that pollinators visit. When pollinators have good habitat, all the other organisms in the ecosystem benefit. Meet at the trailhead off Parklake Avenue, just south of Lakeview Drive (map:

A small group will also care for the bioswale on the east side of the park (near Parklake Ave and Lakeview Dr). Within the bioswale volunteers will be removing invasive plants and giving some TLC to the space. Although professional landscapers visit the bioswale throughout the growing season to remove the more aggressive invasive species, there is still plenty of work that can be done on a smaller scale. If you are interested in becoming a steward, please contact Catie at Stewards work on their own schedule throughout the year to weed, plant, collect seed, prune, etc.

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 This workday is organized by Natural Area Preservation and the City of Ann Arbor Systems Planning Unit in collaboration with the Water Resources Commissioner’s Office.
