Explore the oak forest above the River Raisin while you help the Nature Conservancy cut honeysuckle bushes. Along with improving your physical fitness and upper body strength, you can learn to identify native plants, meet some neat caterpillars and see artifacts illustrating some of the past human history of this place If cutting bushes doesn't interest you, we have a knapweed pulling project.
Tools will be provided. Meet just east of North Raisin Center Highway, 0.2 miles south of Ives Road and the golf course, where a Nature Conservancy sign will be posted until 9:00.
For even more fun bring your friends!
P.S. Stick around for Lev's Bakery chocolate chip cookies and Mountain Dew at the end of the day.
P.P.S. After the cookies there is an optional walk to see a unique topographical area with rare amphibians.
