Despite its proximity to a major roadway, Huron Parkway Nature Area is a pretty place to wander through the woods. Malletts Creek flows along the eastern border, and scenic overlooks of the channel can be found here. Cutting and removing invasive shrubs is an opportunity to support the larger habitat for fellow humans on World Habitat Day. This day is a reminder that all have the power and responsibility to protect and conserve natural resources. Meet at the Park Steward’s house at 3470 Woodland Rd, off East Huron River Dr (map: tinyurl.com/HuronParkwayWoodland).

Pre-registration through VolunteerHub is encouraged. NAP continues to monitor recommendations from health officials; please stay home if you are feeling ill. Volunteers registered for events will be notified in advance of any changes to the workday. Please wear long pants and closed-toed shoes, and wear socks that close the gap between shoes and pants. Bring a water bottle and leather gloves if you have them. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools and know-how provided. Register at tinyurl.com/HuronParkway100222.

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.
