October is a wonderful time to witness the diverse flora that Barton Nature Area has to offer. From the moisture-loving Joe-pye-weed of the wet meadows to the big and little bluestems of the dry prairie, when you visit Barton, you know you’re in for a treat. This natural area has come a long way since 1960 when it was purchased from Detroit Edison, and there is still lots to be accomplished. Your help in restoring Barton Nature Area - by cutting and removing invasive shrubs - is what continues to invite special species of birds, butterflies, and mammals, and it will help keep this unique park healthy for years to come. Meet at the Barton Dam parking lot on Huron River Dr (map: tinyurl.com/BartonParkingLot).
